Welcome to Slough Hindu Mandir. Slough Hindu Mandir was built by the Slough Hindu Cultural Society - formally opened in 1981 - it was the first purpose-built Hindu Temple in the British Isles. 

The purpose of worship in the mandir is to ‘have darshan’ of (or see) the gods and goddesses. Worship enables the devotee to clearly see – and be seen by – the divine. Prayers and hymns (such as bhajans) help the devotee to experience the divine presence. Hindu teaching says that worship comes from human hearts and minds, and is expressed in actions.

The daily services of the mandir usually include morning and evening arati ceremonies led by a Brahmin priest. The priest’s role is to look after the murtis of the gods and goddesses in the temple by washing them and clothing them each day. The priest also feeds the gods by placing blessed food, called prashad at their feet. This food is then shared out with worshippers in the temple or given to people in need.


"The soul can never be cut to pieces by any weapon, nor burned by fire, nor moistened by water, nor withered by the wind"
