Gita Bhavan Hindu Temple
The Gita Bhavan Hindu Temple stands on the junction of Wilbraham Road and Withington Road, in Chorlton cum Hardy.

Built in 1879, it was originally a Congregational Church which closed sometime before 1987 when it was bought and restored as a temple for the Hindu Community. Part of the restoration includes this colourful frontage to Wilbraham Road.
