Dr Sukhpal Singh is a homeopathy physician, he attended Guru Nanakdev Homeopathy College of Ludhiana to receive his formal qualification. At a young age he showed great interest in line drawings. Gradually he progressed to model making, his first replica of The Golden Temple was built in 1976 on the Golden Temple's 400th anniversary. Dr. Singh's skill is greatly influenced by his grand-mother who was a very pious lady and a staunch devotee of Sri Guru Ram Das Ji.

Dr. Sukhpal Singh believes that by displaying the replicas of various Gurdwaras and Sikh religious places at prominent places, the younger generation can be made more aware about their culture and religion. By seeing a minature of a Gurdwara one would be able to relate and appreciate with the Gurdwara or the religious place more. The replicas being to the scale are that much more realistic. All replicas carry with them facts about each Gurdwara tp help people learn about the historical background of the Gurdwara in question. Dr. Sukhpal's skills are not restricted to model making, he is also an avid painter. He paintings relate to the sikh religion.
