Odinshof

Odinshof is a modern pagan temple located in the hills of California that serves as a gathering place for practitioners of Asatru, a modern revival of the pre-Christian faiths of the Norse and Germanic peoples. Odinshof is the first community centre and hof of the Asatru Folk Assembly. Odinshof was initially called NewGrange Hall, and is located in the town of Brownsville, California.

Odinshof was acquired by the Asatru Folk Assembly in 2015, and has since functioned as something of a headquarters and a community centre of the organisation.

At Odinshof, followers of Asatru can come together to worship the gods and goddesses of Norse paganism, such as Odin, Thor, and Freyja. The temple features a central altar, adorned with images of these deities, as well as other symbols and artifacts associated with Norse mythology.

In addition to regular religious services and ceremonies, Odinshof (through the AFA) also offers classes, workshops, and other educational opportunities for those interested in learning more about Norse paganism and Asatru. Visitors can also participate in community events and social gatherings, which help to foster a sense of community and connection among modern pagan practitioners.

The Asatru Folk Assembly appears to be the most active organisation in the USA, with three other hofs: Baldurshof in Minnesota, Njörðshof in Florida, and Thorshof in North Carolina.
