Murugan Temple in Ireland and the first Hindu Temple outside the Dublin region. It had its Maha Kumbabishekam (First day Prayer) on June 9, 2022, More than one hundred people joined us as we celebrated the opening day. Amongst those in attendance was Deputy Mayor of Athlone, Cllr Aengus O’Rourke, Cllr. Frankie Keena and Cllr Emer Kelly as well as people from multiple nationalities who arrived from across Ireland.

The establishment of a midlands temple to facilitate members of the Hindu community outside of Dublin became very necessary as the Hindu community is a growing community in Ireland with 13,729 members recorded by the CSO in 2016 and today, as we await the results of the recent census to confirm the exact figure, it is estimated that the number of practitioners of the Hindu religion in Ireland is approximately in excess of 17,000 people.
