Welcome to Aberdeen Hindu Temple Trust

Namaste!

Welcome to the Aberdeen Hindu Temple Trust (AHTT). A number of different organizations provide religious and cultural support to people of Hindu religion in Scotland. A group of volunteers in July 2014 from these organizations united under the umbrella of the Aberdeen Hindu Temple Trust (AHTT) to serve the people of North-East Scotland. AHTT is a registered charitable company (SC044908) company number 469306).

The key objective of AHTT is to build a place of Hindu worship and a community center in Aberdeen. We bring members of the Hindu community in Aberdeen city and shire, under the various organizations together to a common place of worship, thereby promoting religious harmony and to help advancement of our rich heritage and culture in Hindu religion.

AHTT Newsletter – Winter 2020

It has been a very positive and successful year for the Aberdeen Hindu community and the Trust with huge strides been made towards acquiring a property for the Hindu Temple. We are proud to inform that the community now has a premise which will function as the Aberdeen Hindu Temple. Thanks to the undying spirit of all the members of the community, for continually and wholeheartedly supporting every step through donations and active participation. This has led to AHTT now finally attaining visible success in its endeavors.

We are happy to announce that purchase of the Old Stoneywood Church, Bucksburn has been successfully completed on 31st of January 2020 and the process of converting this office premises to Hindu Temple has begun.

Aberdeen city council has granted planning permission to use the property for religious use, subject to a few conditions. Some of the conditions include noise assessment and traffic management. The purification of these conditions is presently ongoing and expected to be completed in a month’s time. Following final approval, minimal renovation work will be carried out on the property.

We also met the Bucksburn Community Council to communicate our objectives and our community’s ethos in general. These have been an incredibly positive step towards building a friendly and supportive relationship with the local community and also in enhancing social integration moving forward. AHTT has also featured in the community council’s published ‘Bucksburn News’.

Due to the rising energy and maintenance costs, we kindly request you to set up regular monthly payments to help sustain this on a longer term. It costs over £5000 per month to run the temple, major expenses being priest salary, mortgage loan and energy bills for a large granite building. Please set up a monthly direct debit payment for any amount that’s possible for you.
