Radha krishna • Shyama ashram • Shrinathji haveli
The Radha Krishna Temple was founded by Her Holiness Maa Shyama Devi around three decades ago. A deeply pious lady with firm faith in God, she had already set up several temples in India. Her first temple in Britain opened in Leicester in 1967. The Leicester congregation raised money to establish a temple in London for the Gujarati community. A vacant shop in Balham High Road was acquired and the Radha Krishna Temple opened in 1977. Another adjacent shop was then after converted to become part of the temple. Her Holiness Maa Shyama Devi passed away in 1999. The Radha Krishna Temple is managed by three women, including the daughter of Her Holiness Maa Shyama Devi, who is regarded as the mother of the temple
Hindus worship different deities according to the region of India they originate from, family tradition, and/or personal choice. A temple is usually dedicated to one God but will also contain shrines of other deities. The Hindu home will contain a shrine dedicated to the God or Gods that are particularly important to the family. For the individual, daily worship may take place in the home or at the temple.
