Among the countless attractions in contemporary and culturally diverse Wembley, such as Wembley Stadium, Two of the largest Hindu Temples outside of India are home to Wembley.
The Neasden Temple is the first traditional Hindu Mandir outside India is an architectural gem that has become one of London ‘s ‘must-see’ attractions.
Two thousand tons of Italian marble and 3,000 tons of Bulgarian limestone were shipped out to India to be carved by 1000 craftsmen then brought back to London where the beautiful building was assembled like 26,000-piece three-dimensional jigsaw.
Open 9am to 6pm daily. All visitors are welcome. Dress code: no revealing or short clothes.
Wembley’s newest looming landmark has finally opened its doors after 14 years of construction. The £16 million Hindu mandir is located on 2.4 acres of land in the centre of the well known shopping area on the Ealing Road, Wembley which is visited by thousands each year. There is none of the metal core most buildings have and, instead, it has been built using ancient techniques based on Hindu scriptures.
The method dates back thousands of years and was used to construct the world famous Angkor Wat in Cambodia.
The beautifully carved temple is made up of mixed stones from Jaisalmair, Bansipahad and Makrana marble, while the majestic outlook is decorated by Jaisalmair lime stone, all of which have been imported from India.
