The Providence Hindu Mandir is located in Providence along the East Bank Demerara highway. The temple which was built in 1932 incorporates the use of traditional Indian architectural elements with European-Christian methods of constructing religious structures in the then British colony.  The single-storey, octagonal shaped, timber structure has a relatively small Sikhara (tower) when compared to Hindu temples in certain parts of India.
