Between 10am and 3:30pm on the first Saturday of every month we’re running a special online version of our monthly Faith Trail in real-time so you enjoy it even if we can’t do it in person at the moment!
12:15pm There is a welcome to the Hindu Temple and an introduction to Hinduism.
Shree Lakshmi Narayan Hindu Temple:
Shree Lakshmi Narayan Hindu Temple was opened by Queen Elizabeth 11 in 2007. It was built using Yorkshire stone and the white marble in the Shrine room was taken from the same quarry as that used in the Taj Mahal. The Shrine was carved by expert stone masons who were flown in from India to undertake this major project, although the builders and architects used were local.
The Temple houses the main Shrine room, a day centre for the elderly, classrooms, a communal kitchen and dining facilities, offices and an apartment for the resident priest and his family.
The congregation that prays here comes from all over the north of England.
