The Sikh community in Northwest Arkansas dates back from the 1990s. The community was formed by a few families which originally met every Sunday in the homes of its members for Paath. As the community continued to grow, the founding members decided it was time to build a permanent place of worship for their small community. Finally, in 2012, with the support of the community, a building was purchased for the Guru Nanak Sikh Temple of Northwest Arkansas in Rogers. Gurdwara in Rogers will serve the needs of Sikhs living in Northwest Arkansas cities of Bentonville, Springdale, Fayetteville, and surrounding areas.
