The Bristol Hindu Temple is a place of worship, social gathering and celebrating cultural activities of the Hindu Faith.
The Bristol Hindu Temple is housed in a converted old church building which is the main place of worship and a peripheral building, called the Gandhi Hall (after Mahatma Gandhi) for other activities and hire.
The Bristol Hindu Temple is the only Hindu temple in Bristol and the surrounding area, catering both the social and religious needs of a strong and a growing community of Hindus.
It was founded in 1979 by members of the Bristol Hindu community who mainly constituted Hindus from East African countries including Uganda and Kenya who came to Bristol in 1972 as a result of unrest there.
Why not come in for a guided tour to look around the Temple and learn about many Hindu Gods/Deities? The Panditji (our priest) will be glad to show you around during the opening hours. Students are very welcome. The temple is open for school visits on weekdays between by prior appointment.
