SharedCity is all about traveling the world without leaving London. Join us as we explore an ornate temple hidden in the quiet streets of east London and enjoy the street life, shops and snacks of London’s answer to South India.  The trip will include an exploration & explanation of temple architecture, Hinduism, spirituality, Hindu myths and legends.  To coincide with the SEA Arts Festival, there will be a greater emphasis on Hindu Art. Your guide for this trip is Manju who grew up in the area and can’t wait to show off the best of Southern Indian hospitality.  You will visit local food, saree & jewellery shops; a guide to the spices and secrets of South Indian cookery; and will end with an optional visit to Manju’s favourite restaurant where you will join her in devouring a delicious Thali & learn more about key South Indian food and ingredients.  There are only 20 spots available on this trip & so we recommend booking a place early!
