Sri Ganesha Temple, Berlin
Welcome to Sri Ganesha Hindu Temple Berlin
It has been a long desire of the Hindu community living in Berlin to build a Ganesha temple. This idea materialised in June 2004 with the support of Bezirksamt Neuköln, who generously offered sites on which a temple could be built. A suitable site was found and chosen on the fringe of the public park “Hasenheide” neighbouring the Neue Welt Criteria for the selection of the site were,
a) Availability of enough space for the project.
b) Favourable connections to public transport system of Berlin.
c) Sufficient parking space with good integration into the neighbourhood, specially the Park Hasenheide. The Hindu community members formed an a ssociation as Sri Ganesha Hindu Temple e.v. with an aim to carry out the construction, maintenance of temple and cultural/community centre. The association is registered in Berlin as e.v., in the year 2006, and is also recognised by the Finance authorities of Germany, as a charitable organisation (Gemeinnüzig).

Moreover, the location of temple has excellent connection to the public transportation (Underground Rail and Bus); sufficient parking space and a good integration with the locality.
A project report on the construction of the temple had been worked out in detail in the year 2005 and 2006 with the close co-operation of respective institutions and agencies.
