Shri Swaminarayan Mandir (Hindu Temple)Located in an unexpected and fairly barren area on the edge of north-west London this stunning Hindu temple is an amazing spiritual and architectural gem, well worth the trip out to the suburbs - in fact, the bleak location makes the beauty and symbolism of the temple all the most spectacular. The first traditional Hindu Mandir in Europe, every one of the 26,300 individually carved pieces that make up Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in its entirety were carved in India and shipped over to London. All of these pieces were then fitted together in just three years, between 1992 and 1995. Inside and outside this place, also known as the Neasden Temple, is absolutely stunning. The stark white exterior, riddled with intricate detail and carvings, belies an opulent, colourful interior. Highly-fashioned pillars, domes, columns, carpets and ceilings provide the setting for some spectacular murtis rich with lavish thrones and royal attire. Please note: this is a place of worship so shoes should be removed and no shorts or skirts shorter than knee length should be worn.

Best for:
Magnificent murtis, devotion and detemination, elaborate carvings, and Hindu opulence.
