Thanks for your generous contribution to the starting of Hindu Temple and Community Center of Michiana. And currently, the fund raising drive wheel has picked up a great momentum. We have crossed $200,000 in total donations as of January 30th, 2009. We have already purchased the building and demolition of unwanted structure will start very soon, after which the renovation will start. Almost all Murthis have been pledged (except Mahavir Jain and Parvati Mata). The temple will be serving the areas of South Bend, Mishawaka, Granger, Goshen, Elkhart, Niles, Edwardsburgh, Plymouth, Sturgis, Kalamazoo, Michigan City and any cities in the vicinity. There is a strong chance that the Hindu Temple will be operating by June 2009.
