great places to visit off the beaten path.

Neasden Temple (Hindu Mandir) ~ the 8th Wonder of the World?

Neasden Temple (BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir), the first traditional Hindu Mandir outside India is an architectural gem that has become one of London’s ‘must-see’ attractions.

2,000 tons of Italian marble and 3,000 tons of Bulgarian limestone were shipped out to India to be carved by 1000 craftsmen then brought back to London where the beautiful building was assembled like 26,000-piece three-dimensional jigsaw. It is open from 9am to 6pm daily.
All visitors are welcome and are asked to observe the dress code of no revealing or short clothes. For more information go to the website:  http://www.mandir.org/
