  • Visited the mandir years ago, and the design of the mandir is unlike anything ive seen, this is a great place to visit, to understand Hinduism, truly beautiful a gift to the London, if you live here you must visit this place!
  • One of London's hidden gems! This is a must go place. It's so peaceful and mesmerising! I stayed the entire morning inside the temple because I was speechless
  • This is undoubtedly, one of the best Hindu temples in UK. The best thing about this temple is its architecture. The amount of work that's going into sculpting this temple is enormous, and it matches some of the biggest temples in India. Its no mean feet, replicating such a temple, in UK. Inside, its calm, peaceful atmosphere relaxes your mind. There are lots of murthis (idols) in the temple, and they are made so beautiful by the sculptors and decorated exquisitely in Indian clothes and jewellery. There is a shop inside, which is very nice too. You can choose various souvenirs, Indian mythological books, books about healthy living, Yoga, post cards, perfumes, room fresheners and a lot more. They do accept credit/debit cards in the shop provided you are spending more than £5. Or else, cash is the only option. Due to security concerns, you are not allowed to take any bags inside. So, if you've got a hand bag or laptop bag etc, you'll be advised to leave it with the security office in the car park opposite the temple. You are probably better off leaving it in your car boot. There is a parking lot right opposite the temple, and there'll be someone directing you to the car park most of the times.
  • This temple's simply majestic. It is well worth visiting. The staff is so kind and helpful. There is a great atmosphere at the temple; so quiet and peaceful. I'd strongly recommend stopping by ad it is unbelievable that something like this I'd actually in London and not somewhere in India. I was genuinely impressed.
  • Very artistic tenple. Nice to come here for peace of mind once in a while
