A temple for Hindus in Dubai will be launched by Diwali next year. This has been reported in media reports. The foundation stone of this temple was laid during the epidemic in August last year. According to the Community Development Authority of Dubai, the temple is being constructed near the Guru Nanak Singh Durbar in the Jebel Ali area of the city, which is an extension of the Sindhi Guru Durbar in Dubai.
The Sindhi Guru Durbar Temple is one of the oldest Hindu temples located here, which began in the 1950s. Speaking to Gulf News on Sunday, Raju Shroff, one of the trustees of the temple, said, “This temple is a hallmark of the open mindset and mentality of the people in the United Arab Emirates and Dubai.” Its journey from an old temple of 70,000 square feet to a temple and community center would not have been possible without the generosity and open views of the rulers of Dubai and the unprecedented support of the CDA, Dubai.
The temple is spread over an area of 75,000 square feet
According to the Khaleej Times report, this temple will be home to 11 deities of Hindus. The report also said that the temple structure is to be constructed on 25,000 square feet of land, while the entire complex would be spread over an area of 75,000 square feet. The structure will have two basements, a ground floor, and a first floor.
The temple will also have a 4,000 square feet banquet hall with a capacity to accommodate approximately 775 people and a 1,000 square feet multipurpose room for smaller ceremonies. The capacity of the people participating in it will be 100. The Hindu community has expressed great pleasure with the construction of this magnificent temple.
