Requested Move[edit]

The following is a closed discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the proposal was move to Gurdwara. --RegentsPark (sticks and stones) 03:32, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

GurudwaraGurdwara — Alright. It seems that this article is somewhat confused, the lead spelling being Gurdwara and the Article title Gurudwara. It seems this article was originally created under the name Gurdwara, and was moved to gurudwara by the user Lucky009 in August 2008. Gurdwara has a slight lead in google searches of gurudwara, and the article was originally at "Visiting a Gurdwara", it seems, so I believe the article should be moved back to Gurdwara. Gurdwara has a lead of about 10-6 over Gurudwara in a Google News search, and is used by some, but not all official Sikh organisations. Compoundinterestisboring (talk) 06:51, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

  • Support It appears to be spelled as Gurdwara all over Wikipedia, including in this article. If it really is wrong, it should be changed everywhere, but right now it appears to make more sense to move this back to Gurdwara for consistency. Propaniac (talk) 15:40, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
The above discussion is preserved as an archive of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.
    • It should be changed because from what I know, it is wrong. The reason that a Gurudwara is called a Gurudwara is because when translated, the word roughly means "God's house" vs Gurdwara does not mean anything, but is almost a slang that the generation of today has started using when reffering to a Gurudwara.Gkpan (talk) 01:19, 7 April 2010 (UTC)


Sit cross legged on the floor? What about people like me who cannot do that? Radio Sharon (talk) 02:27, 23 March 2010 (UTC)

Temple?[edit]

Gurdwaras aren't temples. The definition of a temple is a place where offerings and sacrifices are made to a higher deity. No offerings are made in the Gurdwara. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 217.43.28.98 (talk) 14:38, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

The Laird of Luton....[edit]

...I'm rather surprised to learn that there's a Bedfordshire in Scotland, as one of the image captions seems to suggest.... 82.5.68.95 (talk) 15:51, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

Dasam Granth[edit]

According to Sikh Code of conduct . Dasam Granth kirtan is not allowed . Can you please remove that part

thanks Chapter V

Kirtan (Devotional Hymn Singing by a Group or an individual) Article VI (a) Only a Sikh may perform kitran in a congregation.

(b) Kirtan means singing and scriptural compositions in traditional musical measures.

(c) In the congregation, kirtan only of Gurbani (Guru Granth’s or Guru Gobind Singh’s hymns) and, for its elaboration, of the compositions of Bhai Gurdas and Bhai Nand Lal, may be performed.

(d) It is improper, while singing hymns to rhythmic folk tunes or to traditional musical measures, or in team singing, to induct into them improvised and extraneous refrains. Only a line from the hymn should be a refrain. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 123.2.39.105 (talk) 01:26, 17 April 2013 (UTC)

Gallery[edit]
