Gateway to Sikhism

The Gurdwara Sahib Chemor was built around 1914 to serve the religious needs of the Sikhs. The size of the Gurdwara Sahib premises is 1 Rood and 11 Poles. This Gurdwara Sahib building was demolished in 1940 as it was in a state of disrepair.

The present Gurdwara Sahib building was built in 1941. This single storey Gurdwara Sahib has a raised roof made of zinc sheets, which is rather distinctive. There are two rooms in the Gurdwara Sahib premises, which may be used by Sikh visitors.
