Hindu Temple Visit

IMG_4064Last Thursday we went to a Hindu temple in Lewisham. In RE  we have been doing Hinduism. Before we entered we took our shoes off because Hindus believe that if you come inside somewhere with your shoes on it brings in dirt from the street. Hindus do not eat meat and a cow in particular because they believe Vishnu’s wife is inside a cow. We saw a statue of Ganesh he was holding a mango a coconut was in front of him. There was a statue of Shiva’s army.  When you come into a temple you always worship Ganesh first.IMG_4067
