Year 4 recently visited Europe’s first traditional Hindu Temple. BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir – popularly known as the Neasden Temple – is dedicated to the worship of Bhagwan Swaminarayan and the millennia-old traditions of the Hindu faith. It is a masterpiece of traditional Hindu design and exquisite Indian workmanship in the heart of London. Using 5,000 tonnes of Bulgarian limestone and Italian and Indian marble, it was hand-carved in India before being assembled in London in just 2½ years. Year 4 were amazed at the intricate carvings and learned about the world’s oldest living faith.
