Gurdwara Karamsar, Ilford

This beautiful new domed temple, made of sandstone and intricately handcarved by Rajasthani stonemasons, welcomed visitors as part of the Open House London 2005 event.

Visitors from a range of backgrounds took the opportunity to see inside this architectural gem, and young Sikh volunteers gave a tour and answered questions.
