Wembley & Crawley Mandirs Open “2 Temples, 1 Vision”
The month of May witnessed a historic occasion for London’s Hindu community, the opening of two grand Sanatan Hindu Mandirs, in Wembley and Crawley respectively. The opening of the mandirs is the culmination of years of hard work, devotion and faith on the part of countless volunteers and devotees. Key ambassadors of both of the projects are prominent Lohanas who have served the community tirelessly over the years.

  Shri Vallabh Nidhi’s (Wembley Mandir) executive chairman is Shri Narendrabhai Thakrar (North London), an LCUK Trustee in 2009. LCUK trustee Shri Ajaybhai Jobanputra (South London) is also a governor on the SVNUK Board. One of the key ambassadors of the Crawley mandir is Shri Piyooshbhai Chotai, President of Lohana Community South London.  
  Both Mandirs been built using ancient techniques based on Hindu scriptures, the “Shipla Shastra”. Many of the temple's component pieces have been hand carved in limestone in the tiny town of Sola - located in the Indian state of Gujarat - before being flown over and pieced together in the UK.
