Britain's King Charles III visited the newly built Guru Nanak Gurdwara, in Luton, north of London.

Britain’s King Charles III on Monday inaugurated a new gurudwara in England and interacted with community leaders, volunteers and students. The Sikh place of worship is located in Luton, in the eastern England region of Bedfordshire.

Charles, who covered his head with a kerchief, offered his prayers and sat on the floor with Sikh devotees in the prayer hall. He also visited the langar or the community kitchen at the Guru Nanak Gurdwara. He interacted with the volunteer women who were preparing rotis for the devotees.

The gurudwara langar serves around 500 meals a day.


The Luton Sikh Soup Kitchen Stand at the gurudwara that the monarch visited provides vegetarian hot meals seven days a week, through the year. “During the pandemic, the Gurdwara also ran a pop-up Covid vaccine clinic, which was one of the first of its kind in the UK. The Gurdwara encouraged other places of worship to tackle misinformation regarding vaccine hesitancy,” the Instagram and Twitter handle of the British royal family wrote, along with photos and videos of King Charles’s visit.
