In the past few decades, the population of the Hindu community in the UK including Manchester has increased manifolds. Earlier, many in the community residing in and around Manchester felt the need to build a community hall and a temple so that the young generation will get a platform to understand its cultural and religious background. With this view in mind, the Hindu community of Manchester built Gita Bhawan in 1987-88, recall devotees associated with the temple activities.
