Welcome to Shree Ghanapathy Temple

 

JOINING THE WORLD IN PRAYER The Shree Ghanapathy Temple is one of the most innovative Hindu Temples of its kind. Since our opening in 1981 we have developed an unparalleled approach to serving the Hindu community in London whilst also contributing and supporting the multi-cultural and diverse country that we live in.

The Shree Ghanapathy Temple has been operating as a Hindu place of worship for over 35 years. From its first service on Sunday 12th September 1981. The Shree Ghanapathy Temple has grown and adapted to the changing needs of our Hindu Community. The focus has shifted. over the decades, to meet the changing needs of the devotees – from that of purely religious worship, to a more holistic approach in providing for the spiritual. moral and emotional needs of the community. Our temple is fortunate to have a group of amazing volunteers, made up from some of the different groups who use the Temple and its facilities.

These volunteers are the cogs which keep the Temple moving and help to ensure that the Temple runs seamlessly throughout the year. The Temple was created to serve Lord Ganesha and His devotees-to give spiritual and emotional comfort to all those who need it. We have no fixed rates for basic religious services at the Temple. Our basic principle is that the Temple is open to all who wish to come and pray, regardless of wealth or status, social background or creed. The principle ethos that runs through all our work in the Temple is that “Makkal Sevai Mahesan Sevai” – “Service to Man is Service to God”.
