Gurdwara Nanaksar

Chapin, South Carolina.

Welcome to

Sikh Society of South Carolina

In the 1970s, the Sikh community in South Carolina lacked a dedicated Gurdwara, conducting religious services in homes. Gurpurb and events were observed in Georgia and North Carolina. In 1990, community leaders initiated plans for a Gurdwara, securing architectural plans from Rene Mangat. The donation drive fueled the project, leading to the establishment of the Sikh Religious Society of South Carolina in 1995 on a donated 3.64-acre tract. The initial 60’ X 60’ building served both religious ceremonies and langar.

Prayer Hall

As congregation was increasing, Community decided to work on a bigger prayer hall and to use first building as dining hall. A fund drive was initiated to apply for the bank loan. Architect Abhay Pradhan of North Carolina graciously donated architectural plans for the new 7000 square feet building. Half of the total cost of new building was raised by the community of South Carolina.
