“Beautiful temple”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

Bit of a remote location, but definitely worth a visit! Very friendly staff and the main temple is stunning! Apart from that, there is not much else open to the public, so visits won't take long, unless you pay for the exhibition! Nice idea for a Sunday afternoon!

“Lovely temple x”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

Went today with the family. Temple itself is very beautiful and I found the staff very friendly and helpful. There is a car park opposite and it's free on weekends which is good. Once you arrive, bags have to go through a scanner and you have to pass through a metal detector. Once through, women in the right, men on the left, there is space to hang jackets and remove shoes and a bay to park the prams. There is also a room dedicated to women and children for breast feeding etc which I thought was very good. The temple itself is elegant and beautiful. The exhibition on Hinduism is insightful and educational.
Would recommend stopping by the Indian supermarket and sweet deli across the road.

“Hidden gem”

Great venue-tucked away en route to Ikea in Neasden. Worth a detour as its stunning inside you forget you're in London.

“Same like in Delhi:mini-version”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

Visited in June or July 2012, great view, very clean and well maintained. Looks similar to Delhi temple but smaller. Simple architecture. A modern temple.

“A must see beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

The temple was so beautiful i did not believe London had such an amazing monument. we were amazed by the architecture and the detail that had gone into this temple. I felt a inner peace when entering this place of worship.The exhibition inside gives you a rich enlightenment into Hinduism and culture as a whole. we were treated very well by the staff and i can honestly say it is well managed and they make you feel most welcome. An absolute must see....
