Any building where the Guru Granth Sahib is kept is a Sikh place of worship. Followers of Sikhism believe in one God who guides and protects them. They believe that everyone is equal before God. Sikhs aim to work honestly, share with others and lead a truthful life as part of their community. It is called the Gurdwara ('Gateway to the Guru').
