Members of the Sikh Center of San Antonio pride themselves on hospitality, and on welcoming everyone to prayer, regardless of race, caste, gender, religion, or ethnicity. Visitors will be surprised to hear, in this quiet Gurdwara in the San Antonio suburbs, the music of professional Tabla and Harmonium players accompanied by children singing traditional Sikh hymns in Punjabi. Here, over a hundred local Sikhs gather each Sunday, many of them newly in America, to maintain the traditions of their Punjab roots.
