“Gurdwara, in this sense, are a place that make Sikhs, particularly a young Sikh, feel comfortable,” Lal, whose body of work focuses on the Indian diaspora, specifically in North America said. The Gudwara [sic] serve as “a nexus for Sikhs looking to find a sense of community” in the United States.

Southern California public broadcaster KCET profiles the Vermont Gurdwara (Sikh house of worship) in Los Angeles, California, and the role it and all Gurdwaras play in connecting Sikhs – both newly arrived and already residing – to their community.
