Our Temple is situated just outside the heart of Edinburgh in Scotland, in the area of Leith. Our building, a former Church, is a spacious building which can easily hold 500 people and more when the need calls for it.
We have a fairly large congregation which meets once a fortnight.
Our temple is run by a small Executive Committee who take care of the week to week running of the Temple.
Although we do not yet have our own priest, we hope to have one once renovations are complete.
The Edinburgh Hindu Mandir & Cultural Centre is established for the advancement of religion, culture and arts.
Beginnings of Hinduism
Hinduism has its origins in the Indian subcontinent, although the Hindu way of life is more often referred to by Hindus as the Sanatana Dharma (eternal way of life). Hinduism has no single founding figure or point of historical origin and Hindus perceive the Sanatana Dharma to be eternal. It has developed in very diverse schools of thought and religious practice.
