Durban Hindu Temple –Shree Thakurdwara and Dharmashala (aka Somsteu Road Temple/ Depot Road Temple) is one of the oldest temples in KwaZulu Natal, serving the community. Durban Hindu Temple situated at 24 Somsteu Road, Durban, is an important landmark for the 1860 Indian Settlers.
Three temples were built to serve the Indian Settlers in the central Durban area. Today only Durban Hindu Temple remains - the other two were demolished to make way for the magistrates court and Durban’s New Station. Durban Hindu Temple reflects the spiritual and cultural history of the 1860 Indian Settlers. The adjoining historic landmark is being renovated and converted into a social and cultural centre for the purpose of the moral and cultural up-liftment of the community.
