Abstract (Document Summary)

More than 10,000 Sikhs from across Ontario took part in the ceremonies at the new Ontario Khalsa Darbar gurudwara (holy shrine), on Dixie Rd. in Mississauga.

Dressed in traditional [Sikh] garb - the men wearing turbans and carrying kirpans (ceremonial daggers), the women in soft flowing silk saris - the Sikhs formed a colorful line, waiting in blistering heat to view the interior.
