Swiss Sikhs are a small religious minority in Switzerland, numbering no more than 500, with Three gurdwaras. The number of Sikhs had been higher in the mid-1980s, caused by the presence of some 3,000 Sikh asylum seekers.[1]

Gurdwaras[edit]

  • Gurdwara Sahib, Langenthal. This gurdwara, first begun in 1996, was finished in 2006. It is the first Sikh shrine in Switzerland built in the traditional Sikh style.
  • Gurdwara Guru Nanak Sabha, Geneva
  • Gurdwara Sahib, Daniken
