Shree Ram Mandir marked its centenary  celebrations, Shatabdi Mahotsav, amidst much gaiety and in large numbers, with various activities being organised during the festive period commencing from 4th to 14th April.

“The history (of Shree Ram Mandir Nairobi) dates back to 1919, when the Maharajah Suimair Singh of Jodhpur, Rajputana in India passed away, much to the sorrow of the people. As a token of love and loyalty towards the late Maharajah, the marwadis of the community in Nairobi raised funds to lay the foundation stone for the Mandir in Eastleigh… Due to the development of Nairobi, in 1994, the temple was shifted to Parklands,” said the Mandir’s Youth Leader, Pratik Patel.

Today, the temple holds various auspicious occasions, including Ram Navmi, Hanuman Jayanti, Janmashtami and Navratri. During the centenary celebrations, Avadh Ardas Ram Leela Mandal – a group from Ayodhya, India – also performed a skit on Ram Leela, a theatrical depiction of Lord Ram’s life and teachings.
