The former Wardlawhill Church building is being transformed into a new Hindu Temple.

The centre will be called the Sri Sundara Ganapathi Temple and will be housed in the former church on Hamilton Road in Rutherglen after the premises was mortgaged by the South Indian Cultural centre Of Scotland.

Renovation work is currently being carried out in the aim of getting the centre ready for the end of April.

Roughly £10,000 has been spent transforming the venue which the group acquired six months ago through the Church of Scotland. The centre will be able to host language classes, dance classes, matrimonial services, marriage counselling, translation services and spiritual classes as well as a Yoga camp and many more facilities yet to be announced.
