Landmark Hindu temple in London celebrating Silver Jubilee

London, July 27 (ANI): A Historic Hindu temple is celebrating its remarkable Silver Jubilee in Willesden, London, this week.

The shrine was the first of its kind to be built in Europe.

Devotees from all over the world, including Australia, India and America, have travelled to the UK to mark the 25th anniversary of the landmark Shree Swaminarayan Temple, the Daily Express reported.

The festivities included a street festival, which was attended by thousands, a live music concert and an opening ceremony choreographed by the youngsters of the temple.

The holy place is the first Swaminarayan Mandir, which is dedicated to the followers of a Hindu division called Swaminarayan Sampraday, to be built in the capital.

Hundreds of volunteers have organized for nearly two years to hold the nine days of festivities. (ANI)
