Jain Temple and Community Centre
By the grace of Padmavati Mata and Parshwanath Bhagwan, we are pleased to inform you that the London Borough of Barnet has granted planning permission for the dream Jain Centre at 64-68 Colindale Avenue, London NW9 5DR on 9th January 2013. The Centre will be a three storey building providing ground and first floor, and place of worship and study for all major Jain traditions including Shrimad Rajchandra Gnan mandir on the second floor.
Jainism is an Indian religion followed by several million people in India and by a sizeable Jain diaspora in UK, USA and other overseas countries. Its values are based on friendship to living beings and improvement of quality of life for all, non-violence and reverence for all life, pluralism, equality, concern for animal welfare and the environment, calmness of self and spiritual liberation by self-effort. To practise these values and to provide facilities, resources and services to Jains and wider community, the Jain Network was launched on 9th of March 2007 in London as a result of an initiative by the Jain leaders, organisations and other community.
The Jain Network has acquired a freehold property for the development of The Jain Centre, 64-68 Colindale Avenue, London NW9 5DR. It has a temple, auditorium, educational wing and other community facilities. The Jain Network plans to develop a purpose built Jain Centre
to serve the spiritual needs of all
Jains and improve the quality of life of Jains and wider community.
