Mahila Celebrations | London Mandir 25th Anniversary
In August 1995, His Holiness Pramukh Swami Maharaj inaugurated BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, London, creating history – it was the first traditional Hindu mandir of its kind in the western hemisphere – and crafting the future for thousands of worshippers and well-wishers.
Affectionately known as ‘London Mandir’ and ‘Neasden Temple’, this mandir continues to serve today as a place of devotion and learning, an internationally acclaimed architectural marvel, and a sanctuary of peace, harmony and community service.
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of this inspiring creation, a series of enlightening programmes has been planned for everyone to enjoy and share.
