Hindu Temple

Inaugurated in 2000, the Hindu Temple located at Engineer Lane, serves Gibraltar’s Hindu population of approximately 600. The first merchants in Gibraltar from British India are thought to have arrived in 1870 from the area around Hyderabad taking advantage of the new Suez Canal. The establishment in Gibraltar of such traders and craftsmen was by courtesy or permission of the Military Governor of the day and there was no difference as to status or rights between a trader from, say, Genoa and one from Hyderabad.
