Ramgharia Gurdwara, Birmingham

Located in a building that was formerly a non-conformist chapel, the Ramgharia Gudwara stands on Graham Street in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter, very close to the city centre. 

The Gudwara has been located in the old church for around 40 years. The interior clearly displays the hallmarks and basic outline of its former use, however, it has been fully and intelligently adapted for use by the Sikh community. Hockley the area in which it is located was an early site of settlement for Birmingham’s Sikh community when they began to migrate from their homeland in northern India. Many of the local area’s businesses are Sikh owned and bear the names of their owners many of whom worship at the Gudwara.
