A special procession has been held to mark the delivery of holy scriptures to a city’s Sikh temple.

The Nagar Kirtan parade saw the Guru Granth Sahib delivered to the Swansea Gurdwara.

General secretary Kushwant Singh said it was the “first of its kind in Swansea”.

“The main reason why is because it’s taken 27 years to establish a Sikh community of a sizeable nature,” he said.

“In the meantime, we’ve been going to cities like Cardiff, Bristol, London, Birmingham and Manchester to attend such events.

“The fact that we have the numbers and the ability to hold such an event ourselves, it’s the first time.”
