Shri Gita Bhawan Birmingham
The Shree Geeta Bhawan Mandir Birmingham is the first Hindu temple in the Midlands. It is situated on the corner of Heathfield Road and Brecon Road in Birmingham, on the border of Handsworth and Lozells.
The building was the former St George’s Presbyterian Church and was originally designed by J.P.Osborne in a cruciform shape in 1896, however was reopened as the Shree Geeta Bhawan Mandir Birmingham in 1969.
The Rudra Yajna is the Most sacred and powerful among all the Maha Yajna’s encompassing two Nishkama Karmas, namely, Deiva Yagna (worship of Shiva and Other divinities), and Manushya Yajna (performed with Large devotees who partake prasadam or grace of the Lord).
It is very rare that a Yajna of this significance and magnitude can be witnessed. Equally rare is the opportunity for the people to actually participate in the worship. It is also done particularly for the sake of washing away ones sins and afflictions, for bringing peace, prosperity and happiness, along with family togetherness.It is said that Lord Shiva after Bhasmasura was killed with the Help of Lord Maha Vishnu performed the Tandava Dance and then performed the “Rudra Yagna” for the Betterment of Humanity, this Place where the Rudra Yagna was performed is where the SriKalahasti Temple stands now, this temple also has one of the 12 Jyothirlingas of Parameshwara.
