Visiting Neasden Temple
Baps Shri Swaminarayan Mandir as it is officially known, was so on the top of my list to go and see and today I made the trek up north on the Jubilee Line to Neasden. The walk from the tube station to the temple is not exactly scenic, but once you've passed the temple of furniture a.k.a. Ikea, all of a sudden you see the top of the flagged steeples towering over the roofs of the humble residences nearby.
This impressive building which was only built in 1995 is made out of Italian and Indian marble, and boasts some incredibly detailed stone carvings.
