The traditional Sikh festival of Vaisakhi was celebrated over three days at the Guru Nanak Sat Sang Sabha temple in Rutland Road, Boyn Hill.
There was a continuous reading of the Guru Granth Sahib during the event, which ran between Friday, April 18, and Sunday, April 20.
The holy scripture contains 1,430 pages and readers took it in turns to read about 60 pages each, coming to a head with the final reading in front of hundreds of people of Sunday morning.
Vaisakhi, celebrated by Sikhs around the world, marks the day in 1699 when the faith was born.
Home Secretary and Maidenhead MP Theresa May visited the temple on Friday evening.
Event co-ordinator Karnail Pannu said: "We are absolutely delighted with how it went.
"We were expecting rain for the outdoor services and it did come but we finished on time.
"It was very enjoyable, successful and everyone is very happy."
