Welcome

The Okanagan Sikh Temple and Cultural Society was incorporated in November of 1979. At that time there were 34 families in the area. The first temple in Kelowna was opened on May 30, 1982. In the mid ninety’s the Sikh population had grown substantially and a new facility was required; so in 2003 plans for the new temple were drawn up. In the following year the construction of the new facility began which was largely done on a volunteer basis. On April 26, 2008 the new building was open to the public. The Sikh community has come a long way and are proud to be a part of this great city.
