Visit | Neaden Temple
Wednesday 20 April 2011 - 11:00 until 12:30
Neasden Temple is the first traditional Hindu Mandir in Europe. Its construction was an amazing feat, with 26,300 carved pieces of stone put together like a giant jigsaw puzzle. About 2,820 tonnes of Bulgarian limestone and 2,000 tonnes of Italian Carrara marble were shipped to India, to be carved by over 1,500 craftsmen and then reshipped to London, where the pieces were assembled in less
than three years by 1,000 volunteers. This visit offers members an opportunity to see the magnificent art and architecture on display in this building, along with a chance to learn about the Hindu faith.
