El Sobrante is a town in central California. The town was first settled in 1794 as a Spanish mission, where Native American Indians were forced to convert to Christianity, after which they were moved against their will to San Francisco, where most died of European disease or starvation.

Today, it is a suburban area in the midst of the Appian Mountains. It has a high Sikh population as well.
