I believe in the power of education through travel, and here I share the tales and tips that I find interesting and inspiring. I hope that you do too.

    wow beautiful pictures and fascinating description of what you experienced. It was very nice having you with us on a special day like that. Look forward to seeing you again soon and share our wedding day with us.

      Thanks Neil, it was a brilliant day full of surprises- the temple was a revelation to me, especially the exhibition. Thanks for welcoming me into your day and occasion, and yes – see you soon for the even bigger day!! x

    What a beautiful building, such ornate carvings. I’ve been to a few Hindu temples around the world but it must be even more interesting to learn about the rituals and traditions that go on there.

    • Sara Dobak says:

      Yes, the detail in the carvings was mesmerising, and what I loved most was the materials were from sustainable sources.

  4. So lovely – I actually grew up in the area and passed it often but never went inside. I recommend Regent’s Park Mosque for another incredible interesting location, and who knows they may let you take more pictures.

      I’d never heard of it until my friend mentioned it for her son’s wedding blessings, but it just shows how much can bypass our notice. That includes Regent’s Park Mosque too, so thanks for the suggestion 🙂

  5. How fascinating! I’d love to visit both the temple and the exhibition, although I have to admit I’d feel very frustrated not to be able to take photographs. Perfectly understandable of course that it’s not allowed. I had no idea this temple existed!

    • Sara Dobak says:

      I felt the same about the photos – and the weather was terrible for those I WAS able to take from the outside. But it was a lovely day and I’ll write a little more about the Hinduism exhibition soon.
