A beautiful Sunday evening at the Pattaya gurdwara framed by a local Thai-Sikh.
“The gurdwara is in a street in South Pattaya surrounded by local houses and a market, a bustling area actually….It’s my hometown,” ChaetanSaheb Singh Sethi (Aekarak Sethi) tells Asia Samachar when we spotted the photograph he shared on the social media.
A few hundred Sikhs, mostly into tailoring and real estate, live in the Thai city.
In 2015, Gurdwara Sri Guru Singh Sabha Pattaya, the sole gurdwara in Pattaya, celebrated its silver jubilee. It was opened on 28 Oct 1990.
