Guru Nanak Foundation of Tidewater
The Sikh Society of Hampton Roads emerged in the early 1980s. It began simply with a group of ten families who gathered in one another’s homes to worship together. Prayer meetings were held in homes where a Guru Granth Sahib Ji was or a family with access to the sacred text would bring it to another family’s home for worship. As the local Sikh population grew, they established a Gurudwara in Chesapeake, Virginia in 2007. Currently we have approximately 50 families in the Hampton Roads which run and maintain the Gurudwara on daily basis.
The Gurudwara is open at all times, with formal weekly (Sunday) worship services and community meals (Langar) are held. The community gathers every Sunday from 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM for prayers. Due to COVID-19, Langar and Breakfast will not be served.
