The South Bay's Sikh community celebrated the opening of the religion's largest temple in the U.S. Sunday.

The new San Jose Sikh Gurdwara sits on a hill along Murillo Avenue. Gurdwara means "gateway to the guru."

The temple hosted an open house Sunday to show off the $32 million addition to its existing facilities.

Many visitors, both Sikh and non-Sikh toured the expanded temple during an open house Sunday. The temple's kitchen planned to serve 10,000 vegetarian meals to all the visitors.
