Gurdwara Mata Sahib Kaur

Visitors to the Gurdwara Sahib

Evi/Pyar Kaur 
Chaur Seva

Khandas and Ik Ongkar (One God)

Swords representing the fight against injustice and oppression

The Chaur or fly-brush
Originally used to chase away flies from VIPs
Now a sign of respect for the
Guru Granth Sahib

We have many beautiful cloths for the Guru Granth Sahib
Many bow to the Guru Granth Sahib
Not enough Sikhs read, try to understand and apply the teachings of our eternal Guru
