The Siri Guru Nanak Gurdwara in Gillingham was formally opened in 1 April 1984 . It is used by the local Sikh Community, Sangat. One important role of the Gurdwara is to be the place where the Anand Karaj (Sikh marriage ceremony) is performed.
The Bride and Groom will walk around the Guru Granth Sahib Ji, as the Ragis sing the words of Lavan. Holding his end of the pall, the Groom walks around the Guru Granth Sahib Ji, the bride follows the Groom holding on to her end of the palla. The couple makes their first martial adjustment by keeping in step with each other. They bow together before the Guru Granth Sahib Ji concluding the first wedding round they will resume sitting. Every time the bride and groom arise or sit down during the ceremony they will bow down to the Guru Granth Sahib Ji out of respect by touching their foreheads to the ground. The second, third & fourth Lavan are conducted in the same manner.
