The Sikh community in Newcastle has been celebrating the latest stage in the construction of a new Temple.
The symbolic golden dome, known as a Gumut, was lifted into place on top of the new building, in Newcastle's west end.
The new temple replaces the current building, which the community has occupied since the early 1970s. It will be the first purpose-built Sikh place of worship in the North East.
The community hopes it will give them a visible presence in the city.
The building is expected to be ready to use by February 2013, with an official opening ceremony planned for April.
