Hindu Ceremony on Wreck to Reef Site

By May 13, 2016 No Comments

We were very pleased to help out the Hindu Community and The Royal Navy by providing them with a suitable location to lay a marble figure to rest.

Members of the British Hindu community gathered aboard a Naval Service ship for an historic ceremony at sea. Royal Fleet Auxiliary Wave Ruler hosted members of the Armed Forces Hindu Network and some of the congregation from a Hindu temple in Birmingham for the immersion of an idol – the first time such a ceremony has taken place aboard a Naval Service vessel. Representatives of Hindu communities throughout England also attended the ceremony, which saw a 5ft tall 800kg white marble figure – Lord Narayana  – laid to rest off the Dorset coast.
