History

Guru Nanak Dwara is a vibrant Sikh Gurdwara community in the heart of Phoenix, Arizona. Founded as a spiritual village, this campus serves as the home for Sikhs from both east and west. Established in 1970, it is the longest continuously-operated Gurdwara in the State of Arizona. Guru Nanak Dwara literally means the ‘Gate to Guru Nanak’. The founder and first Guru of Sikhism, Guru Nanak reminded humanity that all creation is equal in the eyes of the one creator.

For almost 50 years, Guru Nanak Dwara has been envisioning and manifesting a beautiful and peaceful inner-city spiritual campus in service of the Sadh Sangat. As the doors to Guru Nanak Dwara open in every direction, to each and everyone, our humble prayer is to continue this Seva for generations to come.
