The Hindu Mandir Society was established in 1980s to serve the Indo Swedish community of Stockholm. A religious, non-profit, charity, the primary aim of this society is to build a temple and a community centre to meet the spiritual, ritual, ceremonial and social needs of Hindus. Hindu Mandir had the vision to build a grand temple, where people, believing in Hinduism could come together and pray according to our individual beliefs and traditions. The dream came true in September 1998 when after many years of struggle the temple in Helenalund was inaugurated. Since than the Mandir has become the centre of attraction for the local community. The Hindu Mandir secures the hindu way of life based on vedic traditions at the same time being the integrated part of swedish society. The Hindu Mandir on regular basis has worship, cultural events and events for elders as well as youths.
