Virbaimaa Jalaram
Community Centre


A Centre for the Community

The Community Centre was officially opened by the City Mayor, Sir Peter Soulsby,

and Deputy Mayor Councillor Manjula Sood, aided by members of the Jalaram

Satsang Mandal and represented by Shardaben Joshi and Motiben Mashru who

celebrated her 100th Birthday that year. Major Donor plaques were unveiled by

Mrs Kalaben Raichura, the Thakkar Family and the Popat Family.

Jalaram Community Centre is on the site of the previous Jamaat Khana which

was purchased in 2003 on Westcoates Drive opposite Jalaram Mandir.

Bapa’s new community centre is designed in such an iconic way that the

total complex, along with the existing temple will become known as “Bapa’s

gateway to Leicester”. The new building has been designed in exactly the

same style as the existing temple to give it a sense of being one complex.
