Also known as  Neasden Temple, due to its location, it holds a number of different activities throughout the year which families and visitors can get involved in.

It is one of the largest temples outside of India and stands as a place of spiritual worship and solitude.

The 'Understanding Hinduism' exhibition is a permanent feature of the attraction, which also caters to school and group visits.
