London Sri Selva Vinayagar
"We extend a warm welcome to all our devotees"
Sri Selva Vinayagar Temple is one of the most innovative Hindu Temples of its kind. Since our opening in 2004 we have developed an unparalleled approach to serving the Hindu community in Redbridge, London, whilst also contributing and supporting the multi-cultural and diverse country that we live in. We have always been focusing on providing the best facilities we can for our devotees. Over the years, we have seen a rise in devotees therefore we are refurbishing our building so that we can meet the developing needs of our community.
Sri Selva Vinayagar Temple was started in 2004 by the Late Mr Selvarajah. He wanted to ensure that there was a Temple in the borough where he lived so that he, along with the thousands of Hindu devotees living here could go to a Temple close to home.
Since 2004, the Temple has steadily grown, inviting a wide range of Hindu devotees who attend prayers on a daily basis.
Following the completion of 12 years, the Renovation Project was started on a grand scale, with stones arriving from India. Having now neared the completion of this project, the Temple looks forward to returning the God's to their former homes in new shrines.
We invite all devotees to offer their prayers at the Temple and take the blessings of Pillayaar.
