Sikhism or Sikhi is one of the most recent religious faiths that originated in the Punjab region of the Indian subcontinent, present-day Pakistan,[ii] around the end of the 15th century CE. It is the most recently founded major organized faith, and stands at fifth-largest worldwide with about 25–30 million adherents (known as Sikhs) as of the early 21st century.
Sikhism developed from the spiritual teachings of Guru Nanak (1469–1539), the faith’s first guru, and the nine Sikh gurus who succeeded him. The tenth guru, Gobind Singh (1666–1708), named the Sikh scripture Guru Granth Sahib as his successor, bringing to a close the line of human gurus and establishing the scripture as the 11th and last eternally living guru, a religious spiritual/life guide for Sikhs…
The first Gurdwara (Sikh Temple) in the community of Vernon was registered in October of 1979 after purchase of a previous church building on 27th street.
Over the following years the Sikh community in Vernon increased in numberand quickly outgrew the original Gurdwara site. The community thus bought a plot of land on 3800 Commonage Crescent and completed construction on a new Gurdwara in 1987 through donations from its members and support of the neighbouring community.
The community next purchased the acreage surrounding the Gurdwara for future development purposes.
This now expanded Gurdwara site continues to serve the Sikh community of Vernon until present day.
