INDIANA---For nearly 10 years, much of Indianapolis' growing Hindu population has worshipped in a temporary space — a functional yet spartan building, so unlike the intricately ornate temples in India. But in June, the Hindu Temple of Central Indiana will unveil a long-awaited, $10 million expansion. It will add a worship hall that includes 17 shrines, with a skylight surrounded by four new carved towers that transform the sand-colored building into a more recognizable temple silhouette. [link]
