The Gurudwara Sahib of the Bluegrass was opened in April 2015. The Lexington Sikh Sangat of 30+ years, were finally blessed with a home for Guru Granth Sahib ji Maharaj at 257 Swigert Avenue, in a beautiful setting nestled inside the peaceful Joyland community, adjoining horse farms. The 13,000 square foot facility consist of two stories, a large Darbar hall, Langar hall and Langar Kitchen. The facility also has rooms upstairs that are used for kids classes. The Gurudwara grounds around the building are about 8 acres with a children's playground and vegetable gardens.
This was made possible by bold initiatives taken by a few community members, who realized that the Sikh community in and around Lexington was large enough to require a community space that would serve as a regular meeting venue for Guru’s Sangat.
Religious services began the very first Sunday that the community received the keys for the Gurudwrara.
Since its opening, Sangat has been meeting and holding religious services every Saturday evening and Sunday, with Sangat from places as far as Pikeville and London, KY. The space is also used routinely for weddings, and other special events. The Gurudwara is open daily for anyone who would like to visit.
