Shiva Temple Dubai UAE

Hindu Temple, Dubai  (referred to locally as Shiva and Krishna Mandir) is a temple complex in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE).  It’s actually Two Temples near by in the same complex.

The temple caters to the large Hindu community in the United Arab Emirates and is the only Hindu temple in that country. The temple complex comprises a Shiva and Krishna temple.

The Hindu Temple is located west of the Dubai Creek in the area of Bur Dubai (specifically Al Bastakiya). The temple is run in conjunction with the Indian consulate in Dubai; the temple also performs marriage ceremonies between Hindus. However, registration of Hindu marriages cannot be performed in the United Arab Emirates.

The Hindu Temple Complex at the Bur Dubai creek is the single temple in UAE for thousands of Hindus in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah,Ajman, Umm Al Quwain, Fujairah and Ras Al-Khaimah – the seven kingdoms which form United Arab Emirates.

Interestingly, the temple sits next to a Mosque in the busy Bur Dubai area.   The Shiva and Krishna Mandir temple complex was built back in 1958.

Milk, coconut, fruits, flowers and sweets are given to Gods offerings by the devotees here. Apart from Shiva and Sri Krishna, there are also paintings of Ganesha, Goddess Durga, Goddess Lakshmi, and Sai Baba.

There is a large queue during weekends and holidays at the small temple complex. Devotees have to wait for long period to get darshan. The shrines are dedicated to Lord Krishna and Lord Shiva.
