Hinduism is a relatively minor religion in Northern Ireland with only around 2400 Hindus in the country.[1] There are, however, 3 Mandirs in Belfast: Radha-Krishna Temple in Malone Road, Laxmi-Narayan Mandir in Clifton Street and Radha Madhava Mandir (ISKCON) in Upper Dunmurry Lane.[2] There is also a Hare Krishna Centre on Inish Rath Island that was established in 1985.[3]
