1969. People remove their shoes before entering Vermont Gurdwara in Los Feliz for its dedication ceremony. The Sikh (pronounced “Seek” or “Sick”) temple was the first established in Los Angeles County. Today, there are at least eight Sikh places of worship in Los Angeles County to serve an estimated 10,000 to 15,000 practitioners. Los Angeles County Sikhs, primarily immigrants and descendants of immigrants from the Punjab region of India, are believed to have been in Southern California since at least the early 1900s.
