A £1.6 million Hindu temple that has been 18 years in the making will finally open in August.

The Shree Krishna Mandir temple in Old Meeting Street, West Bromwich, will have a week-long opening ceremony from August 22 to 30 – culminating in a procession of 10,000 people.

The procession will go from the temple to Carters Green and back, and an application to close the road has been submitted to Sandwell Council.

An intricately carved archway and wall, which will be fitted around the building fronting the road, are now set to be shipped from India during the next three weeks.
