What we offer?

About Us

A Quest towards promoting community prosperity...
We are proud to be closely collaborating with several like-minded organizations to serve the common mission of promoting harmony and building community bridges.
Our temple is run by a set of dedicated volunteers with multidisciplinary skills and experience, who have taken the organisation from strength to strength. Even with our very short history, we have already been involved in several activities to catalyse social cohesion, environmental conservation, disaster relief, charitable donations, fundraising, food/blood and hay donations etc.
Enhancing community cohesion, helping those in need, skill development and integration for wider good of all lie at the heart of everything we do.

Our Journey

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh.
Siri Guru Nanak Darbar – an abode for spiritual enrichment.
It was a long and interesting journey for the Sikh community of the Cardinia Shire Council, who had been trying to find a permanent home for Gurughar since 2013. Steering through varied hurdles from finding the right site, funds, objections, VCAT case to hosting their Raising Day on June 3, 2018 - the path has been enriching, fruitful and worthwhile with us making so many new friends on the way. The Temple likely marks the first Sikh temple in Australia that hoists Australian, Sikh and Aboriginal flags on the premises, marking the commitment to Australian values and celebrating our unity in diversity.
The first phase of construction for our Gurughar located in Officer, Victoria got completed in November 2018. The community hosted their flagship Inaugural Day on 20th January, 2019 while, also, celebrating birthday of the 10th Guru of the Sikh religion – Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji. The momentous day was attended by over 600 people, including >100 from multicultural communities.
Encompassing area of 20 acres, this sikh temple overlooks trees, creek and natural beauty while connecting everyone to the Guru, Sangat and Sewa. It is noteworthy that the Gurughar does not have any formal organization or hierarchy and is run by group of sewadaars.
We look forward to your presence at this holy abode that brings tranquillity, serenity and hope to everyone.  and an opportunity of connecting with you in this spiritual journey.
Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh.
