Hinduism in Ghana is a relatively recent phenomenon[1]. It was spread to Ghana actively by Ghana's Hindu Monastery headed by Swami Ghananand Saraswati and Hare Krishnas.

Population

Of the 12,500 Hindus in Ghana, 10,000 are indigenous Africans. Swami Ghananand Saraswati has set up five temples in Ghana which have been the cornerstone of the African Hindu Monastery movement. The Indian community in Ghana participates in the AHM, but also has its own temples (most for the Sindhi immigrant community)[2]. ISKCON also has a fairly large presence in the nation, as do disciples of Sathya Sai Baba[3].
