We run an excellent School Visit program. Children from as far away as south London to Briton come to see our Mandir. They learn about our religion, culture and beliefs during the visit. Last year we had around 1000 children who visited our Centre. This year has been busy again and we have already had several school visits with between 50 and 100 children at a time.
