Devine temple. Superb architecture. A must visit. Lovely Asian grocery shops and food shops outside. Reasonable parking fees to park inside the temple premise.

Walked by twice before I went in as if I had been called to go in. Unbelievable feeling!
I love this Shri, amazing architecture, extremely peaceful .
The interior is mind blowing , detailed domes, beautiful deities.
Go with an open- mind ,open your eyes & do take your time to honour all the Gods & Goddesses.
Yes , it is an excellent idea that pictures are not allowed!
🙏

It took its time to be made and the surrounding area is still an eyesore hence the 4 rating.

However it truly is a great piece of art. Wonderfully hand-sculptured. Great shrines inside. A tranquil and peaceful place except on festival days when its more comparable to a market lol.

Good access. Conveniently located near multiple bus routes and underground line. Worth a visit.

I have been visiting this temple for long time. Before it was a temple but now it is like a museaum or an exibition. No way to do some Puja or any Darshan. Deities are in glasses and you can't get closer. The cashier was prompt and ready for all time to collect donations even by credit cards. But no priest at all. On demand and after wait of 20 minutes 2 Young Pandits arrived from whom the first was off duty and second whose name was Bhavik Pandya. He was even not sure if he has studied Sahitya or Vyakaran. There were no shops next to temple to buy flowers and prasad. My 4 year old son was keen to take photo of Hanuman, but it was not allowed upon request.
It looked like show buzz and business. Hardly any devotional feeling. Bad impression.
The temple, architectures and statues are lovely. I wish they could have spent so much money to keep all time priests, daily Yagya and devotional programms. That could have been good use of too much money collected by the devotees.

speaking purely as an atheist i found this temple purely by chance but had to make the most of it and stop to take a look, £2 parking inside or take your chance outside on the mail road, either way it deserves more than just a passing glance, the intricate detail is incredible and the the different deities that are found inside are well represented, stop, look and take it in

Fabulous Indian inspired architecture.
They began building this Mandir twenty years ago and only finished it recently. Carvers from India worked on exquisite sandstone carvings for the outside building and a combination of sandstone and marble carvings were worked on for the inside.

Visitors have to go through security and then once inside you can walk through a one way path from where you will see the Gods and Goddesses set up on many individual shrines.

One extra wow factor is a round table with a mirror on it placed underneath a circular carved arch/dome. The mirror makes the carving look like an infinity - it’s superb.
Well worth a visit although the council need to catch up and keep the neighbouring area clean and free from rubbish!
A few minutes walk from Alperton Underground.

The stonework is exquisite,the temple has it's own free parking, which could be an issue around the Wembley area. Make a point to visit when in the area you will not be dissapointed.

Wonderful place. Didn't know what to expect when we first stepped off the tube in Alperton, but Sanatan temple (Shri Vallabh Nidhi Mandir to be exact) really knocked me off my feet. Such a peaceful getaway in a metropolitan city. Really detailed carvings, beautiful interior, clean and very calming atmosphere.

I knew this plot when it used to be a community centre and it took an absolute age for the temple to be built. The architecture is absolutely stunning. All the carvings have been imported from India and it's truly stunning from the inside and out. I'm not religious by no means but can appreciate the serenity the temple brings. When inside you forget that the busy streets are outside. It's definitely a rose amongst thorns!
