    The big red brick building in Mill Road between Kingston Street and the railway bridge, adjacent to Regent Language School right at the foot of the railway bridge, has has been known as "The Old Library" in the past. It will be home of the Cambridge Hindu Shrine.
    Bharat Bhavan means "House of India". It is used by the Indian Cultural and Community Association, ICCA,

    The ICCA aspires to the beautiful words of Mahatma Gandhi: "I do not want my house to be walled in on all sides and my windows to be closed, instead I want the cultures of all lands to be blown about my house as freely as possible."
    All mayor Indian festivals celebrated and guests are welcome to join in.

    Bharat Bhavan can be hired by community groups, for meetings, concerts (excellent acustics!), conferences, classes and events. details how to book see
