On Christmas day nothing when no trains buses underground run in London my friend Laurie who I was staying with over Christmas planned a walk along the Grand Union Canal.
|Hindu Temple The Shri Sanatan Hindu Mandir|
When I would walk to the underground at Alperton near Wembley where she was pet sitting I would pass the the Hindu Temple The Shri Sanatan Hindu Mandir *All-inclusive Hindu Temple this morning we stopped to take some photos we were invited inside to by a kind old Man who told us the history behind the temple and also gave us beautiful guidebook. No photos were allowed inside which was too bad as it some however I did find this slide show on You Tube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=98Zy_CoF4TY. The temple was opened on May 2010.
*The temple is a place of worship for all Hindus and welcomes those of other faiths. It is a landmark with outstanding architectural splendour. This spectacular free
visitors of all faiths and none, although certain Hindu customs – such as the
removal of shoes upon entry – are expected to be adhered to during your visit* London
Afterwards we walked along the canal it was a beautiful sunny day and I loved the walk I have walked other parts of the Canal over the years this was a pretty spot at times seeing the swans. We later went back to the house and had a lovely Christmas dinner mine was Lamb and did Christmas Crackers to boot.
