Temple Renovations & Building Fund
As the first Hindu Temple and only Ganesha Temple in Victoria, we are proud to announce that construction of all the Shrines in granite has already begun in earnest. When completed, this will be the largest Temple of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere.
Granite as you may be aware is a ‘living’ stone, able to absorb all the vibrations of the chanting and devotees’ prayers. This is the reason it was used in most temple constructions in the olden days. Equally importantly, the Temple will be a long-lasting temple, as we can witness those in India and Sri Lanka constructed out of granite.

Amongst this group, a core team of people set up the Pro Tem committee and along with other likeminded individuals, began the gigantic task of building the first Vinayagar Temple - Sri Vakrathunda Vinayagar Temple - in Victoria.Read More
