History It was in the 1890s that the first Sikh immigrants, mostly from Punjab, arrived at the Angel Island immigration station. These pioneering immigrants had crossed the vast Pacific and came to the shores of California in hopes of a better and freer life. "The San Joaquin Valley of California, with its Mediterranean climate and abundance of fertile soil and arable land, reminded the new immigrants of their native Punjab, and became a place where many of them settled to raise crops that were native to Punjab," she said. "A tight-knit community, the Sikh residents of the San Joaquin Valley formed a committee to raise money for a temple. In September 1912, a plot of land was purchased on the South Grant Street in Stockton to build the first gurdwara in the US. The temple was consecrated on November 22, 1915& became the birthplace of Sikhism in the US
