san jose gurdwaraFounded in 1985 by leaders of the Santa Clara Valley Sikh community, the San Jose Gurdwara is the largest gurdwara in North America at 90,000 square feet. The temple is built on a hill with gorgeous views of San Jose and the Silicon Valley.

This iconic landmark is a beautiful backdrop for a Sikh Indian wedding because of the views and the architecture. Below are some sample images from key Sikh wedding moments from the San Jose Gurdwara.

The symmetrical arches and the endless columns create a photographer’s playground for group portraits and couples portraits for the bride and groom.

Baraat at the San Jose Gurdwara

A large roundabout is perfect for the Baraat, as the groom and his loved ones greet the Bride’s family.  There’s room for a horse or a car, the DJ, the Dohl Player and all of your family and friends.
