It will offer facilities for both worship and associated community events, including teaching, and flexible, multi-function community spaces.

It will be open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily and there will be separate entrances for males and females into their respective sections of the prayer hall, is learnt.

It will replace the existing Shree Swaminarayan Mandir Oldham, which was launched October 22, 1977.
