A 300-strong procession turned out to mark the opening of Norfolk's first permanent Sikh temple at an old furniture store in Norwich on Sunday, 11 October 2010.
The Guru Granth Sahib, the Sikh holy book, travelled the streets of Norwich from Eaton Parish Hall - the community's old home - to its permanent residency at the new gurudwara, or temple, on Old Palace Road.
The monumental moment for the county's Sikh community arrived as the Guru Granth Sahib moved into its new home at the temple known as Gurudwara Shri Guru Ramdas Prakash.
"Because there are few Sikhs in Norwich the procession was prepared in London in Southall and travelled all the way up to here," said Ujall Singh Kular, president of the Norfolk and Norwich Sikh Society.
"It was hard work but it's something we have wanted for a long time," said Chanan Singh Suwali, one of the temple's founders and the appointed president of Gurudwara Shri Guru Ramdas Prakash.
The creation of the county's first ever Sikh temple was made possible after 10 years of fundraising within the community.
There are thought to be about 100 Sikhs in Norwich and about 70 of them are related to one another. They make up the 22 families behind the temple.
A vibrant procession featuring flag bearers and a float carrying the holy book filled the city with colour and provided a proud moment for the county's Sikhs.
Prayers took place outside of the new temple before the holy book was carried inside. Until now local Sikhs have had to travel to places as far away Peterborough and Ipswich to undertake prayer at a temple.
"We are really pleased and we are really, really happy that we have accomplished this because we have had to work really hard to get this place up and running," said Mr Suwali's daughter Lakhbeer Kaur Larh.
