History of Temple

Sri Venkateshwara (Balaji) Temple and cultural centre (SVBTCC) was formed by devotees of Sri Venkateshwara Swamy in April 2018 with a vision to construct Sri Venkateshwara (Balaji) Temple in and around London as a part of an iconic “ Balaji Village” that serves as a cultural, social, spiritual & Yoga centre depicting Hindu Dharma and illustrating the multicultural nature of Bharat in England.
SVBTCC will function as a ‘non-profit’ organisation/Charity Institution with a central purpose of serving the devotees in the UK & Europe, to promote Hindu Sanatana Dharma and Hindu Culture, Values & Traditions.
The Core Members Team was formed with well-regarded professionals like Doctors, Lawyers, Technocrats, Bankers, Philanthropists, Home-makers and all walks of life people with only one common connection of ‘Devotion & Service’ to Sri Venkateshwara Swamy.
Team consists of Devotees who worked for similar religions, spiritual and community support charity projects successfully in the past, which brings a wealth of expertise to SVBTCC.
