The Hindu community in Exeter is fund-raising to build a giant temple in the city, set to be “the biggest in Europe”. The £5 million plan includes a huge, ornately carved temple similar to the giant temple in Neasden, London - but even bigger. “In all, we are looking for a site of four acres,” said Exeter property developer Prem Sivlal, who is spearheading the project. “With the rise of the Hindu community in the South West, including medical and dental schools and a rapidly expanding student population, now is the time to build a place of worship,” said Mr Sivlal. “Visually, the temple will be very like the one at Neasden in London, which is beautifully carved and very ornate - but larger.”
