The first Sikh Temple to be constructed in the visible shape of a Temple with a dome and arches was completed in 1924 in Silat Road.

In the 1930s the Temple was neglected because of dissension in its congregation. During the Japanese Occupation (1942-45) widows and orphans were accommodated in and around the Temple premises. The Baba Karam Singh Samadh in the Singapore General Hospital Grounds, Outram Road, was transferred to the Silat Road Gurdwara in 1968.

There are Sikh Temples at Niven Road, Sophia Road and Wilkinson Road. These Temples are not only places of worship but also venues for Sikh community to meet.

The Sikhs who migrated to Singapore are today a small but vibrant community whose religious activities and welfare are in the hands of Sikh organizations like the Sikh Advisory Board and the Khalsa Association which has its own premises and which conducts various activities including Punjabi classes. Members of the Sikh community continue to serve in the Civil service, the Singapore Armed Forces, the Singapore Police Force, and in various professions and businesses. There is today a Sikh member of Parliament.

Because of their strong religious faith the Sikh community was able to introduce Sikh Studies in the Singapore school curriculum and teach the subject in the schools. The community celebrates events like the birthday of Guru Nanak and Guru Gobind Singh. The Sikh Bangra dance is a vibrant attraction during Signaproe National Day rallies and a popular item in cultural concerts in the Republic.

The Sikh population has grown throughout the years; in 1921 it was 2,000 and in 1931, 3,500; in 1957 it was 7,000; today it is about 12,000.
