About Us

us ErrorVishnu, whose name means "All-Pervading," is the protector of the world and the restorer of moral order. He is peaceful, merciful, and compassionate. Vishnu is often pictured with four arms. Each hand holds an emblem of his divinity: the conch, discus, club, and lotus. He is usually depicted with a dark complexion, as are his incarnations. Vishnu is best known through his ten avatars (incarnations), which appear on earth when there is disorder in the world. Rama and Krishna, whose stories are told in the Epics are the most popular incarnations of Vishnu by far.

The main objective of The Bristol Hindu Temple is to promote both the culture and the philosophy of the Hindu faith to its members and the community at large.

In order to achieve its objectives it is constantly involved in organising events based around religious festivals, raising funds and donations from its members and the general community ( as it is a registered charity), and working with schools to heighten the understanding of Hindu Culture and Faith among other communities.

In addition to this, The Bristol Hindu Temple is an anchor for various Hindu families in and around Bristol to socialise and integrate with each other.

The Bristol Hindu Temple, besides providing services, has a three tier approach in raising funds to sustain itself. 1. Memebership -=at present it has around 400 members. 2. Donations -= mainly in the form of aarati collection or outright donation; also donations by about 100 members by monthly standing order.

Why not come in for a guided tour to look around the Temple and learn about many Hindu Gods/Deities? The Panditji (our priest) will be glad to show you around during the opening hours. Students are very welcome. The temple is open for school visits on weekdays between by prior appointment.
