The Neasden Temple is the first traditional Hindu Mandir outside India. Two thousand 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.

Our journey, red for walking, blue for our intended bus route.

Wembley Stadium is a football stadium with 90,000 seats which opened in 2007, on the site of the original Wembley Stadium, which had been demolished . The stadium hosts major football matches  and home matches of the England national football team. The stadium will be the home of Tottenham Hotspur while White Hart Lane is being demolished.

Ealing Road Temple Wembley's newest landmark finally opened its doors in 2010 after 14 years of construction. The 16 million Hindu Mandir is located on 2.4 acres on the Ealing Road, Wembley. There is none of the metal core most buildings have, instead, it has been built using ancient techniques. The beautifully carved temple is made up of mixed stones from Jaisalmair, Bansipahad and Makrana marble, while the  outlook is decorated by Jaisalmair lime stone, all of which have been imported from India having been carved there.

Ealing Road, All-Inclusive Temple, opened in 2010. Various gods and "Saints" and even Mother Teresa are represented inside.
