Rebuilding Project

Jay Shree Swaminarayan! We hope you are all keeping well and healthy in these unprecedented times.

2020 was a milestone year for the Gaam whereby the Gent’s and Ladies mandir were demolished as construction work commenced for the building of two new mandirs. Construction has progressed steadily with structural works from the ground up to the roof being now completed. You can see progress pictures and video below.

We therefore take this opportunity to communicate the chance of providing your Seva for this noble project. On behalf of all our Vadasar Communities in Leicester, London, Walsall and across the UK we would be delighted, though we live in difficult times - and if you wish, to make a wholehearted contribution towards the Temple rebuilding.

Any contribution, no matter how large or small is highly appreciated. For further information, please contact info@vadasar.com
