Hindu Temple Opening Ceremony

Posted by on December 22, 2011

This video was filmed by my grandfather in Mombasa, Kenya – 1961. It is of the opening ceremony for the first Hindu Temple in the Nyali suburb. The original footage exists on a 8mm roll of film and I had to use my digital camcorder to film it when converting it to digital. You will notice that the footage itself is rather grainy. The film has deteriorated over time so I will be doing a lot more of these videos as I have a pile of old 8mm films that my grandfather took and it won’t be long now till they are destroyed by time.
