  • Tucked away behind the large mosque located next to the Dubai Museum, this Hindu holy place attracts a large number of devotees. Don't expect to see Hindu-style temple architecture. It is in a convert...  more »
  • In a small and very narrow nearby alleyway to the old souk of Dubai, next to the ria (Dubai Creek) is almost hidden among the top floor of the shops, the only hindu Temple of Dubai, called Shiva and Krishna Mandir. Hundreds of people, both Hindus and sikhs, do row daily to pray in this temple: entering there to quickly do the rites since not much time you can stay inside due to its reduced size. This temple in Al Bastakiya, it was built in 1958 but its community has grown a lot and is already boy, being the only one in the United Arab Emirates. Each day of the week is dedicated to a different God: the morning prayers are performed between the 06.00 and 13.00 pm and in the afternoon between 16: 30 and 22: 00 hs. In its close by are sold "prasad" (offerings to the gods). It is worth visiting this picturesque place, religiously significant Hindu communities in Dubai.

  • A very interesting place, especially when there are Ministry. Have to take their shoes off before him, two floors inside. The most interesting thing on the second (don't forget to cover your head!). Casts a psychedelic State. :) Around him-and then runok narrow streets, you can buy a different meal for the temple (I did not understand what they are doing with it). And you can go on a holiday and put a dot on the forehead of the special paint at the entrance. At the exit can give something weird (food), we did not understand the APC that is. In any case, interesting!

  • Every time I come to Bur Dubai I fancy wandering through the labyrinth of narrow lanes and hidden alleyways. The temple itself is such a peaceful yet lively sanctuary, a precious historical institution for Hindu expats from South Asia to Dubai.
  • Followers were very welcoming to a non-Hindu me. Thank you. Interesting service. Filming and shoes are not allowed.
  • Nice Worship place for Hindus. Thank u UAE
