Whether residing in India or other countries, there is always a desire amongst Lohanas to congregate and maintain our culture, religion and identity.
The history of Lohana Mahajan in Leicester originates back in 1969 when there were about 50 Lohana families that had settled in Leicester. An ad-hoc committee of 4-5 members were inspired to group. As an initial task they collected the names and addresses of all Lohana families residing in Leicester. A first General Meeting was called on 19th February 1970 at the St. Mark’s Church and Shree Lohana Mahajan Leicester was formally established. Office bearers and a working committee were elected. Leicester is thought to be the pioneer in the UK to establish a Lohana Mahajan and thereafter other cities and towns followed.
