We are in final stages of constructing one of the largest Hindu Temples in Central USA (if not the whole of USA), on a 72 Acare property. We have constructed the temple following the Ancient Hindu Agama rules of designing a Hindu Temple. Religious artisans (shilpis) were brought from India to create the traditional art work of the temple and all the Granite and Marble Vigrahas of the deities were carved in India and shipped. we have established a strong volunteer base to operate our Non-Profit organization.
We have completed Rajagopuram (final part of major construction project) and also opened 6 Classrooms.
