Scotland's first purpose-built Sikh temple is preparing to open in Glasgow this weekend.
The £4m Gurdwara includes a prayer hall, language school and kitchen, which aims to provide free vegetarian meals to thousands of people every week.
It has taken just over a year to construct the temple in Albert Drive in the city’s south side.
The temple will become the spiritual home to the majority of Scotland's Sikh population.
On Sunday an official opening ceremony will take place at the Gurdwara where its president Surinder Singh will give a speech following a procession from Nithsdale Road to the temple.
Nicola Sturgeon MSP, Anas Sarwar MP and Glasgow City Council leader Gordon Matheson will also attend the opening event.
