The IAO has come a long way since 1968, and its pioneering services are enjoyed by people from many backgrounds as well as from outside Oldham.

To work towards a vibrant and flourishing community participating in cultural and  community activities in Oldham and the surrounding areas whilst developing a 'Centre of Excellence' open  to all.

The IAO is created to do this through advancing and supporting the social, cultural, religious, leisure, welfare and educational needs of the community, especially those of Indian origin residing in Oldham; and promoting good relations between people of different backgrounds.
About Us
    With its involvement in many charitable activities in the Oldham Metropolitan Borough, the Association has made a profound mark, and has gained respect from all quarters of the community of Oldham. The Association has proved itself to be highly responsible and respectable organisation with its remarkable work over the years. The Association is continuously engaged in the promotion of community welfare and generating goodwill, respect and harmony among all the communities of the Borough.

The fact that the IAO has no administration staff leads to a very busy schedule for the active executive committee members and the dedicated volunteers.

We sustain the core activities of the Dance classes, Youth Club, Luncheon Club, Saheli women’s group , Yoga classes  as well as continuation of the Temple , Registry and religious activities’.

Building Project is now at a procurement stage as Town planning approval gained from the OMBC in 2010 through comprehensive submission.
 Temple service:
The religious activities and celebration of the various festivals are provided by IAO where the Hindu community from Oldham, Greater Manchester, the UK and abroad visit the Temple for darshan. It is for the spiritual advancement of every  soul  to receive the visions of the divine deities of the Temple.

In maintaining the services for the Sanatan Hindu followers  the IAO organizes annual festivals, Yagnas, poojas and various events. Devotees come for darshan, prashad and learning more about forthcoming activities and how they can participate in pujas. By doing this the devotees are able to heighten their spiritual consciousness and re-energized themselves.  During the very auspicious month of Purushottam we organize a Bhagvad Saptaha for the benefit of the devotees. Listening to the katha gives profound insight and vision into the true meaning of atma, the soul and liberation from the cycle of birth.

Annual events such as Navratri and yagna, Diwali and Annkut, Tulsi Vivah, Jalaram Jayanti, Shivratri, Holi, Ram Navmi, Hanuman Jayanti, Hindola Mohatsav, Janmashtami, Radhaashtami, Ganesh Chaturthi, to name a few are celebrated. The weekly bhajans are  held on every Saturday evening at 7.0 to 9.0pm in the temple.

A daily service which takes place at Mandir is the complete   Sewa offered to devotees. Devotees select a day of their choice (this can be a birthday, wedding anniversary or other memorable day/date) and a deity to perform this Sewa  for a one off payment of  £251.00 . Every year on the selected memorable day Arti is offered to that  devotee.

At present , out of the 365 days in the year  239 are still available for devotees .

We sincerely appreciate all the help and support from the devoted community and volunteers for their time and energy and of course everyone’s financial support. We strongly acknowledge that the Mandir is OURS and it is every ones duty to regularly bring all the family members to the Mandir and participate in other activities to maintain our religion and rich culture.
