UK hosts biggest Hindu gathering outside India

Up to 75,000 people were expected to flock to Bhaktivedanta Manor Hare Krishna temple near Watford, northwest of London, to mark the festival of Janmashtami, the birthday of Lord Krishna, born around 5,000 years ago.

The manor was donated in 1973 by George Harrison, the late Hare Krishna-influenced former Beatles guitarist.
