Chatsworth at a glance
Chatsworth is a large formerly Indian township. Situated in South Durban basin in South Africa, Chatsworth is roughly bordered by the Umhlatuzana River in the North and Umlaas River in the South. The area is undergoing a rapid integration of the multicultural ethnic groups.
Chatsworth is a growing, vibrant and cosmopolitan home to over 450 000 people that extends over some 64 different suburbs in a mish mash of old and new architecture and a buzzing economy so diverse it ranges from spaza shops through big brand stores.
As a result of its history, it is still predominantly Indian today, although there is a healthy mix, which is indicative of new South Africa. It boasts a rich flavour of mixed Indian cultures that has given rise to the Temple of Understanding, undoubtedly South Africa's most spectacular Hare Krishna temple, also called Sri Sri Radhanath Temple.
Chatsworth's business community crosses the divide from tiny corner spazas to large corporate companies, alongside a large manufacturing industry and one of the busiest shopping malls in the country - home to the much loved Chatsworth Centre, Bangladesh Market, The R K Khan Hospital, Chatsmed Hospital and several senior and junior primary schools.
Chatsworth is conveniently located and offers value for money, supporting community living.
