Sri Guru Nanak Sat Sangh Sabha located in Chennai was established by Lieutenant Colonel Gill (former Director General of Prisons) in the year 1949. Guru Nanak Sat Sangh Sabha helps to establish social, cultural and spiritual contact among Sikhs in Chennai. Few years ago the Gurdwara was reconstructed by pulling down the original structure.

The site of the Gurdwara is remarkably peaceful. The Sikh families gather here and conduct prayers on the occasion of the birth anniversaries of Guru Nanak, Guru Gobind Singh and Guru Arjun Dev and Baisakhi (New Year in the Sikh calendar).

Teachings from the Guru Granth Sahib (the Holy Book of the Sikhs) are read on these occasions. A free Langar (community kitchen) called "Guru ka Langhar" is run at the Gurdwara. In a Langar, all are treated as equals, no demarcation is made between poor and rich. A free medical centre offers services to the poor.

Every Sunday, the congregation participates in Pujas, Kirtans and the Langar. There are also prayer services in the morning and evening. Daily prayer starts with recitation from the Granth Sahib, after which Kirtans are sung.
