On my upcoming visit in April, I am going to visit the Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, named one of the wonders of the 20th Century by Reader's Digest. It's located at 105-119 Brentfield Road, Neasden.
It was featured on a Lonely Planet show I recently saw and is built of Italian Carrera marble and white limestone. All the pieces of marble and limestone were shipped to India where they were carved and then shipped to London and assembled like a giant jigsaw puzzle. It's akin to having the Taj Mahal in London and an absolutely beautiful building.
It is open to the public but is a house of God. You must take your shoes off and not wear shorts or short skirts. And on Easter Sunday, I'm going to Speakers' Corner, Hyde Park. I'm hoping it's a lovely day where I can get a deck chair and sit in the sunshine and watch the world go by.
