Our vision is to bring awareness of Jainism to the Western world, to provide facilities, resources and services to Jains and wider community.
To realise this vision fully, we acquired a substantial property in 2010 for the development of Jain Centre London which is situated in Colindale, North West London, is well connected by major roads and public transport and is within easy reach from central London.
Jain Centre is already well established in Colindale but is soon to be redeveloped into a magnificent new building – a 30,000 sqft centre with community facilities and temple which we plan to open in 2020.
This will include a maginificent intricately carved white marble temple, place of worship and study for all major Jain traditions, a Multi-faith centre, a community centre, conference rooms and a large hall and other necessary infrastructure facilities.
This monumental Centre, with a development cost of £8million, will belong to all Jains of the world and we invite everyone to take this meritorious opportunity to support the project and bring a lasting legacy to sustain the core values of Jainism for our future generations and disseminate teachings of Bhagwan Mahavir for the benefit of all.
We also invite wider communities to support this unique development and its mission.
