What are the rooms in a Gurdwara (where Sikhs worship)?
It is for my RE homework, my teacher was meant to give me a sheet which tells me the rooms and their purpose but forgot. Help would be appreciated. Thank you

Mankaran ji's link is broken, unfortunately. It should be this: http://www.sikhiwiki.org/index.php/Gurdwara
I don't know all the technical terms, but some of the rooms include:
Darbar Sahib (main prayer hall)
Sukhasan room (room where the scripture is stored overnight)
Langar hall (where food is served and eaten, most commonly in 'pangat' which means in rows on the floor)
Kitchen (obvious, teehee)
Store room/pantry and cool room
Room for shoes to be stored
Guest rooms (most Gurdwaras will have a room or rooms for travellers to stay for a short while)
Gyani or granthi's quarters (where the caretaker would stay)
Those are all the rooms at my gurdwara.
