The first Gurdwara in the world was built by Guru Nanak Dev ji in 1521-2 at Kartarpur.

Before the time of Guru Arjan Dev ji, the place of Sikh religious activities was known as a Dharamsala, which means place of faith.

There are four doors into a Gurdwara, known as the Door of Peace, the Door of Livelihood, the Door of Learning and the Door of Grace.

These doors are a symbol that people from all four points of the compass are welcome, and that members of all four castes are equally welcome.

There's always a light on in a Gurdwara, to show that the Guru's Light is always visible and is accessible to everyone at any time.
