Enfield, temple

"Brundah" is located along Liverpool Road, in the western suburb of Enfield. It was built in 1886 in the Victorian architectural style for wine merchant Thomas Alt. In 1915, the Methodist Church bought the property for a Theological College and later built the nearby "Leigh Hall" in 1928. Much of the land, including the former stables, was sold in 1987 for a residential development with Brundah and Leigh Hall used for a school teaching English mostly to overseas students or recent migrants. After the college relocated in 1998, Brundah became the Shirdi Sai Temple, a Hindu temple for the followers of Sai Baba.
