R.I.P "The Dog"
Gurudwara Sahib Sikh Temple/Pattaya
This Gurudwara Sahip Sikh Temple is down Soi 17 in South Pattaya about 400 meters from Walking Street, Now obviously Walking Street has loads of Tailor shops so this is where they go to make merit for their sins, and they do make merit, Soi 17 is the one that runs behind the South Pattaya market and is filled with run down crappy old shophouses that haven't seen a coat of paint in 15 years, but the Sikh Temple does tend to stand out a bit amongst these run down buildings, so obviously they are raking in the dosh from the sinful Tailors, they must be doing some really nasty stuff to hand over this sort of dosh.
Next door to the Temple is Ravi Indian Supermarket, this is the place to get all that hard to get Indian spices and stuff in Pattaya.
The only trouble with this Soi is that it is way too narrow, if 2 cars park on opposite sides of the road then no cars can get through, and obviously this being Thailand this happens quite often.

I'm a big fan of the Sikh's as people, my happiest memories of my time in India all involve Sikhs.
Gurudwara's are good places to visit, been made to feel most welcome, the larger ones offer free food for all. I had a free lunch at the Harminder Sahib in Amritsar with a mate of mine. He was/is a photographer / filmaker for Lonely planet, he was so inspired he actually went back there and shot a short film of it.
Even the Sukhumvit tailors aren't all bad away from selling..... in fact they can be great company

I agree mate. The Sikhs were the most normal ones that I met in India too, apart from one very friendly muslim lad who I spent a good couple of hours talking about God & cricket to.
