BAPS mandirs around the UK joined thousands of others on Thursday 2 June 2022 in lighting special beacons to mark the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
The beacons formed part of the official national celebration marking 70 years since The Queen ascended the throne.
More than three thousand beacons were lit by charities, communities and faith groups all over the UK. In addition, beacons were lit in all 54 Commonwealth capitals, with the Principal Beacon lit in a special ceremony at Buckingham Palace.
The lighting of each beacon at BAPS mandirs was part of a community celebration including prayers and a cultural programme paying tribute to Her Majesty’s seven decades of public service.
