The BAPS Swaminarayan temple is dedicated to Bhagwan Swaminarayan, a hindu Saint of the 18th century. This beautiful temple, recognised as the largest outside the Indian subcontinent, boasts some of the finest hindu carvings and idols of many gods and goddesses. The sense of calm and beauty of the temple make it worthwhile for both the casual visitor and dedicated... More

Visited today and was fortunate to witness the ceremony with the Murtis. We were warmly welcomed and the complex was explained to us by the various attendants. The carvings in both wood and marble were stunning.

The temple is far from most tourist attractions, and they should have built in a larger plot. Anyway is really beautiful and interesting. Not for a one-week tourist, but if you spend one month in london it is worth to visit this temple.

We had a day trip to see the temple for the first time after it was recommended to us, and I remember my children going there on a school trip. It truly is a beautiful temple and we were lucky to have a clear sunny and warm day. There are renovations at the moment to the front but it doesn't... More

I was disappointed with the pre-tour presentation which lacked clarity and detail and was far too long. It was interesting to hear about the personal contribution each worshiper had invested in the original building and being a lively, older group of enquiring minds we had high expectations of learning about Hindu ethos. Sadly when we reached the sacred area we... More

I was living on the area for 2 years before I realised it existed, so I guess is not a well known place in London. It's the biggest Hindu Temple outside India, first built in Europe with stone following the traditional methods, and you can notice when you are inside, is breathtaking!! It's free to enter, but there is a... More

This is the third time I have visited the temple (the first two being with school children!) Each time I've been, I've been awed by the building and the love and passion that's been poured into it. The Mandir is one of the most amazing places. If you can, definitely go when the Arti ceremony is being performed! A definitive... More

We were bowled over by the beauty of the building. The stone and wood carvings are exquisite. The Staff were excellent, every single one was so friendly and welcoming. The Manager and his Staff were extremely generous, they looked after us extremely well and gave us an insight into the temple with their comprehensive explanations . We are very grateful... More
