SKSS Temple 25th Anniversary Procession Forest Gate

The picture college is from this morning's procession to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Swaminarayan Sampraday Hindu temple in Forest Gate.

The procession started at Wansted flats and went past my home to the Temple in Shaftbury Road, E7. I was just back from a run so I dashed inside to get a camera.

It was very organised but lively and colourful with marching bands, drummers, singing and dancing. It took about 10 minutes for everyone to pass by.

A very cheerful and happy occasion. I was given a red scarf to wear (obviously my favourite colour) and marchers were giving children free sweets and lollypops. Click on picture to enlarge.
