Sri Swaminarayan Hindu Mandir (temple), Neasden, London
105/115 Brentfield Road, Neasden, London NW10 8JP, UK
Telephone 0181-965 2651; Fax: 0181-965 6313

This Hindu temple located in the heart of London suburbia, in the district of Neasden is dedicated to the Hindu deity Lord Swaminarayan, who is worshipped mainly in the Gujarat region in India. It was built in 1995 as a replica of the Akshardam temple in western India. An elaborate construction of limestone and marble, it took over a thousand sculptors to build it! The 50,000 tons of rock was shipped to India where traditional craftsmen carved it, and it was then shipped to London to be erected - all at a cost of around £10million.

This is the largest Hindu temple outside India and consists of the Mandir and a Haveli complex. Haveli's are buildings which were constructed in India long ago and resemble a hall, it is where Hindu events can take place. The Haveli complex has a gigantic roof which is only supported at the periphery of the building, with no central supporting columns! The Mandir, adjacent, is made of limestone on the outside and Italian Marble on the inside. The intricate carving, inside and out, was done in India by special craftsmen and the stones were assembled like a Jigsaw puzzle, in Neasdon, without the use of any steel infrastructure!
