Hindu Temple in Vancouver Island, Canada



The small Hindu community in Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada has a beautiful temple in Central Saanich called the Hindu Temple of Victoria. Interestingly, the Hindu temple was an old Anglican Church. The Hindu community members purchased the church and renovated the building. But still the temple retains the look of a church, perhaps indicating that God is same everywhere.

The Hindu Temple of Victoria has deities of Lord Rama, Sita, Lakshman, Hanuman, Lord Krishna, and Radha. In July 2007, Goddess Saraswathi and Balak Nath were added.
