FLOODING: Gurdwara Sahib Khalsa Dharmic Jatha

Two gurdwaras were hit in the massive flooding that wrecked havoc on the island of Penang following an overight downpour.

Gurdwara Polis Sikh Pulau Pinang and Gurdwara Sahib Khalsa Dharmik Jatha were affected in the flooding today. The water almost go into the darbar sahib, or the prayer hall, of the former.

“The water level is going down. The compound needs cleaning as it is full of mud,” one Penang-based active Sikh worker told Asia Samachar.

The other two gurdwaras on the Penang island are Wadda Gurdwara Sahib Penang, which is situated on a higher ground, and and the newly built Gurdwara Sahib Bayan Baru.
