On Saturday 22 September 2018, BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, Luton, participated in the 22nd Annual Peace Walk organised by the Luton Council of Faith.
The objectives of the Peace Walk were to understand different cultures and traditions, meet new people from within the community, and taste different varieties of cultural food.
Around 200 walkers visited the Mandir, including children from three different schools.
Raj Pancholi, a volunteer at the Mandir, welcomed the visitors and then presented a short introduction to BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, London – popularly known as the ‘Neasden Temple’ – and the history and activities of BAPS in Luton and the Bedfordshire area. The session ended with an insightful question-and-answer session.
The event serves as a part of the Mandir’s wider engagement with the local community in Luton.
