United Kingdom’s Oxford City To Get First Hindu Temple11th July 2023
The city council in Oxford, central southern England, has approved plans.
There is a piece of good news for the Hindu community in Oxford, England. The city council in Oxford, central southern England, has approved plans to convert changing rooms at a derelict sports pavilion into a Hindu temple and a community centre, say media reports.
The Oxford Hindu Temple Project will transform the football changing rooms located at Court Place Farm in Marston, Oxford, reported the BBC.
The new structure will house two halls in the building, one will function as a place of worship while the other would be used for community gatherings. Meanwhile, plans for the internal design are due to be submitted.
“We feel extraordinarily proud at this historic moment as we look forward to creating a welcoming hub at Court Place Farm,” Dr Gian Gopal, founding chairman of the Oxford Hindu Temple Project, told BBC.
