In 1977 a group of Hindu Bengalis came together to form an association called Hindu Pragati Sangha (HPS). For over 30 years, HPS has been striving to keep Hindu religious and cultural traditions alive in London amongst a climate of ever-increasing spiritual decline, and in turn, a legacy for succeeding generations.

In 1985, after years of celebrating Pujas in rented halls and through generous member donations, HPS purchased a freehold space which had originally been the garden of a house on the corner of Rhonda Grove. The space – now a hall – falls within the Tredegar Square Conservation Area and is surrounded by properties valued in excess of £1m. The hall became the ‘Mandir’ of HPS and is ultimately situated at the very heart of East London; across the road from Mile End tube station and minutes from Docklands and The City.
