The Hindu community of Hampton Roads can be really proud of completing 24,000 square feet of Temple Complex on 10 acres of waterfront land. It is indeed rare for a small community consisting of some 500 families to accomplish such a feat. The Hindu religion is not simply a religion of rituals, since it integrates culture and religion into our daily lives and our Temple Complex will provide a focal point for the religious as well as the cultural activities of our community. I would like to give a brief history of this incredible project and would like to thank all the people who have helped its success. First and foremost, we need to thank all the contributors who have donated generously to the Temple. These people have made this project possible.
