Place the exploration of faith and the buildings which have been inspired by worship to the heart of your visit to Gravesham.
You will find some of the earliest Christian Churches in England with surprising collections of medieval brasses, stained glass and craftsmanship from many stages of church architectural history. Many at the centre of the communities which they continue to serve, some with associations with historic figures and important architects and others off the beaten track, but well worth a visit.
You will be amazed by the magnificent Sri Guru Nanak Darbar Gurdwara, the new place of worship for the sizeable Sikh community who live in Gravesend. As the largest single site Sikh complex in Europe, it is receiving much praise and interest and visitors are guaranteed a warm welcome. Arrangements are in place to receive visitors for regular worship, festivals and weddings and to greet school parties and other groups.
A place grand in scale, accommodating 1200 worshippers, and accomplished in its detail, with hand crafted marble, stonework, colourful tiling and stained glass windows, the Gurdwara and its people leave a strong impression on all who visit.
