Gurudwara (Sikh temple) is the place of worship for the followers of the Sikh religion, but they are open to everyone irrespective of the religion one follows. During my travelling experiences in India and abroad I have stayed in Gurudwaras. I have seen them in many places in India hosting foreigners. According to me, they are one of the safest places to stay for a traveller. A Gurudwara is open to you if you respect the religion and their basic rules. I recently travelled to Malaysia and stayed in Gurudwaras (Watch this video) in different parts. Here is the list of Gurudwaras in Malaysia.
