MWANZA, TANZANIA (AFRICA), February 17, 2010: Mwanza is a city in northwest Tanzania and a southern port of Lake Victoria. The city handles much of Tanzania’s lake trade with Kenya and Uganda. Central Mwanza has an Oriental feel due to its many mosques and Hindu temples, and is well worth a stroll, particularly the area around Temple St, where Mwanza’s strong Indian influence is particularly evident, with Indian trading houses and pan shops lining the streets. Mwanaza is one of the gateway airports for the Serengeti National Park.

The Mwanaza temple was started in 1958 by the Gujarati trading community in Mwanza. Their community services are health and education at their Hindu Union Hospital. Eye clinics, basic diagnosis and diabetes awareness are free services. A new hospital building project is underway.
