BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, known as the Neasden Temple, is the first traditional Hindu Mandir in Europe. Thousands of tonnes of Bulgarian limestone and Italian Carrara marble were shipped to India, carved by over 1,500 craftsmen and shipped back to London. In all, 26,300 carved pieces were assembled in less than three years by a thousand volunteers. This is an opportunity to see the magnificent art and architecture of the building, and the chance to learn about the Hindu faith and participate in the Arti ceremony (waving lights to the sacred deities).
This event has been organised by a local supporter group to help raise money for the Art Fund.
