LONDON, ENGLAND, August 20, 2020 (BAPS.org): In August 1995, His Holiness Pramukh Swami Maharaj inaugurated BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, London, creating history — it was the first traditional Hindu mandir of its kind in the western hemisphere — and crafting the future for thousands of worshippers and well-wishers. Affectionately known as “London Mandir” and “Neasden Temple,” this mandir continues to serve today as a place of devotion and learning, an internationally acclaimed architectural marvel, and a sanctuary of peace, harmony and community service. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of this inspiring creation, a series of enlightening programs has been planned for everyone to enjoy and share.
The finale celebrations take place August 23, starting at 3:30 pm local time. The announcement reads, “An enlightening and thrilling documentary-style production will explore the rich history and challenging creation of London Mandir and its profound, enduring impact on worshippers and visitors around the world. It will also reveal how we, too, can become a part of this divine legacy of Pramukh Swami Maharaj that continues to flourish today through the guidance and blessings of His Holiness Mahant Swami Maharaj.
