The Afghan-Hindu society's place of worship is located in one of Hamburg's less attractive neighbourhoods. If you look at it from the outside, its building seems rather plain and certainly doesn't hint at the beautiful Hindu temple within its walls. You would certainly not expect to find the golden Buddha figures in the interior, nor the stone sculptures of Hindu gods in such a building. Large plants, candlelight and the scent of joss sticks contribute to a quiet, calm atmosphere here. On weekends believers from the whole city gather for prayers at noon.
