St. John's Hindu Temple

The St. John's Hindu Temple is located in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. In 1975 Hindus established a Hindu temple in Mount Pearl, Swami Chinmayananda donated a marble statue of Krishna which was installed by Swami Dayananda. The temple functioned as an independent organization with the name Chinmaya Mission St. John's.

In 1995, a new temple was constructed in the east end of St. John's where most Hindus live, and subsequently it was renamed Hindu Temple St. John's Association.

All major Hindu festivals are celebrated in this temple. The temple participates in several local ethno-cultural and community projects and events. Children perform a weekly puja on Sunday mornings, and the temple is regularly visited by other groups of school children.
