Hindu Temple in Dubai, United Arab Emirates



Dubai one among the seven kingdoms in United Arab Emirates, an Arab and Muslim country, is well known for its religious tolerance. A large portion of migrant workers from India and Sri Lanka to UAE practice Hinduism. There is a Hindu Temple Complex at the Bur Dubai creek near the Dubai Museum which caters to the needs of Hindus. The temple complex houses the Lord Shiva and Krishna Temples.

There is a large queue during weekends and holidays at the small temple complex. Devotees have to wait for long period to get darshan. The shrines are dedicated to Lord Krishna and Lord Shiva.

The Hindu Temple Complex at the Bur Dubai creek is the single temple in UAE for thousands of Hindus in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain, Fujairah and Ras Al-Khaimah – the seven kingdoms which form United Arab Emirates.

Interestingly, the temple sits next to a Mosque in the busy Bur Dubai area.
