Hindu Temple of St. Louis

Early morning photos of the Hindu Temple of St. Louis.

 It’s challenging to find a time when there are no cars.  This beautiful place serves more than 16,000 area Hindus.  People arrive all day long and well into the night.

 The temple is a dream in the making.  Registered March, 1988, ground breaking,  April, 1990 and formal inauguration occurred Nov. 1991.

Temple design by V GANAPATI STHAPATI and Associates of CHENNAI, INDIA.

 By Jan. 1995 they were ready to celebrate Initiation.

Looking to the future

 A Community Center is being built.  It gives room for quality educational programs and gatherings.

 For twenty years they have fed, given legal assistance and health screening to any coming for help.  This is a place that extends blessing and assistance to others

 I’d parked far away.  Up a hill, under a tree.  It was a perfect moment.  People arriving, sharing with friends. Clear morning sky, a temple and a “mountain tree.”  There isn’t a day I don’t miss the mountains.  There was a sight, a gift just for me.  Took one camera click.  Then, I could share that moment with you.
