Overview

BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir – popularly known as the Neasden Temple – is a masterpiece of traditional Hindu design and exquisite Indian workmanship in the heart of north-west London. It is dedicated to the worship of Bhagwan Swaminarayan and the millennia-old traditions of the Hindu faith. Using 5,000 tonnes of Bulgarian limestone and Italian and Indian marble, it was hand-carved in India before being assembled in London in just 2½ years. Since its opening in 1995, this renowned place of worship has attracted close to half a million visitors annually. Come and marvel at the intricate carvings, experience a traditional Hindu prayer ceremony, or learn about the world’s oldest living faith. Enjoy hours of beauty, peace and discovery all year round.

Travel back in time or across the water without leaving London. For a multicultural trip, Baps Shri delivers a scenic and spiritual setting. Tip: Make sure to enter the teak building for a secret entrance to the temple.
