An old house once owned by a church in the Durban suburb of Queensburgh is being converted into a Hindu temple.

The Sri Mayapur Dham, run by the Vaishnava Research Forum, will be the first permanent Hindu place of worship in the area.

It recently opened its doors to the Hindu community which for four years has had to attend religious events at halls in the area.

While the exterior of the temple is still under construction, weekly services, music and Hindi lessons and Hindu scripture classes have already commenced at the site.
