Temple History : The idea for a Hindu Temple in Slough first surfaced in 1963, but it was to be another 18 years before construction work started, on a council-owned site in Keel Drive in Chalvey. The Hindu temple was built by the Slough Hindu Cultural Society - it was the first purpose-built Hindu Temple in the British Isles. Previously they had met in a community hall in Farnham Road.
Construction took seven months and cost £75,000, which was raised from donations. The official opening was in October 1981, and was attended by over 2,000 people. These included His Holiness Swami Krishnanand Saraswati, the founder of Human Service Trust UK, the mayor Ken Small, and other members of Slough Council. The temple was praised as a superb example of Hindu architecture.
In September 1984 the foundation stones were laid for an extension - this allowed the temple to offer extra community activities, such as Hindi classes, yoga and musical events. The temple was damaged by fire in autumn 1985 and reopened the following spring following renovations. It was further extended in 2001 with the addition of a function room.Temple Hours : Temple opens at : 08:00 AM
