Wales Temple - Skanda Vale

Skanda Vale (grid reference SN419320) is a Hindu and Multi Faith ashram and monastery in Carmarthenshire, south-west Wales. The ashram houses 3 temples one each dedicated to lord Subramanium, Divine Mother and lord Vishnu.

Skanda Vale is located in the valleys of West Wales, about 5 miles (8.0 km) from the town of Carmarthen, on the way to Lampeter, the nearest village is Llanpumsaint. The road to the temple is very narrow (last 4 miles/6 km), allowing just one vehicle to pass at a time. There are three temples: The Murugan Temple, The Maha Shakthi Temple, and the Ranganatha Temple. There is a daily puja at each temple, and many monks live near the temple. There are overnight facilities for people travelling from a long distance.

The Community of the Many Names of God was founded on the worship of God in his universality, in accordance with the spiritual teachings of Lord Krishna as in the Bhagavad-Gita. It was established as a monastic centre in Wales in 1973 by Guru Sri Subramanium. The present 115-acre (0.47 km2) site was originally three adjacent farms and a small block of woodland, which were separately purchased and amalgamated by the community as the grounds of Skanda Vale Monastery. Its first temple, dedicated to Lord Subramanya, was registered as a place of public worship in 1975.
