dc.description.abstract • Opsomming: Menige besoeker aan die Blanke-woonbuurt Melrose in die noorde van Johannesburg is verbaas om 'n ongewone hout-en-sinkgebou daar aan te tref. Dit is die Melrose-Hindoe-tempel wat meer as vyf en sewentig jaar gelede opgerig is. Talle probleme insake die eienaarskap van die grond waarop die tempel gebou is, het in die verlede opgeduik, maar is mettertyd oorbrug. Die tempel wat in 1981 tot nasionale gedenkwaardigheid verklaar is, word vandag steeds as plek van aanbidding en meditasie gebruik en is 'n gepaste huldeblyk aan die pioniers van die Johannesburgse Hindoe-gemeenskap.
dc.description.abstract • Summary: Many people visiting the White suburb of Melrose in northern Johannesburg are surprised to find a quaint wood-and-iron building there. This is the Melrose Hindu Temple built more than three-quarters of a century ago. Over the years there were numerous problems connected with the ownership of the land on which it was built but these problems were eventually overcome. Today it is still used as a place of worship and meditation. It was declared a national monument in 1981. This declaration was a fitting tribute to the early pioneers of the Johannesburg Hindu community.
