Official Rendering Released for the Bengaluru India Temple

The official rendering was released and location announced today for India's first temple, the Bengaluru India Temple, which will be constructed on the 1.62-acre site where India's Church offices and the stake center for the Bengaluru India Stake are located in the Whitefield neighborhood. The existing buildings will be replaced with the 38,670-square-foot temple, a two-level meetinghouse, administrative offices, a distribution center, and a patron housing facility. Project leaders will soon submit preliminary plans and applications to the local government to begin the process of approval. No date has been set yet for the groundbreaking.

"We hope to share details of the design and location before the end of the year," he said, encouraging members to prepare themselves to attend the temple after it is dedicated.
