Meet Mr Apinder Singh!

Hello everyone, I am Apinder Singh from the Central Sikh Gurdwara Board (CSGB) where I work as a lecturer and researcher. My relationship with Sikhism began when I was baptised at the age of 15. At that very young age, I started conducting prabhat pheri (“early morning rounds”) with other teenagers in my village where we sang hymns to ward off evil spirits.

When I joined CSGB, I had to leave my wife and my new-born baby to come to Singapore. While I miss them dearly, their encouragement has motivated me to share my love for Sikhism with my friends in Singapore. I hope to catch you during My Community Festival and bring you greater insights into my religion!

More about the Silat Road Sikh Temple

The Silat Road Sikh Temple (also known as Gurdwara Sahib Silat Road) on Jalan Bukit Merah was completed in 1924 with most of the money being raised by the Sikh community in Singapore and Malaya. The Central Sikh Gurdwara, the Gurdwara Sahib Silat Road and the Sikh Centre are all managed by the Central Sikh Gurdwara Board (CSGB) which runs the day-to-day operations of these religious and community sites. The CSGB is also engaged in reaching out to the local Sikh community through music, aerobics and even taekwondo events! The Silat Road Sikh Temple was declared a historic site in 1999.
