Year 3 Neasden Temple Visit

The pupils were looking forward to visiting the Hindu Temple as many had never been to one before. On arrival many of the pupils were in awe of the beauty of the Mandir as the building is magnificent. A number of hours were spent learning about the history of the building and the origins, beliefs and practices associated with the Hindu religion.

The pupils watched a very informative video explaining the Mandir building and how important the construction was, almost 5,000 tonnes of carved Italian marble and Bulgarian limestone were shipped between India and London and none were damaged. The pupils then had an opportunity to view the exhibition within the Mandir, learning about the Hindu beliefs, gods and goddesses. The pupils were well behaved and extremely respectful during their visit to Neasden Mandir.  This was also commented on by one of the volunteers working in the Mandir, who said they are a credit to Churchfields Junior School.
