San Jose Gurdwara Wedding
Founded 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.

Smaller ceremonies, like the Milni, can be held outside of the ceremony hall. The main ceremony is indoors in a large room that can accommodate hundreds of wedding guests.
