Mahindra Group Chairman Anand Mahindra on October 5 shared a video of the new Hindu Temple inaugurated in Dubai. He has called the temple to be magnificent.

Sharing the video on Twitter, he wrote, “I believe this magnificent Temple was officially inaugurated today. Perfect timing. I will make sure to visit it on my next trip to Dubai.”

Indians’ decade-long dream of a Hindu temple in the Jebel Ali region came true on Tuesday after UAE Minister of Tolerance Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan inaugurated the new Hindu temple. The temple was inaugurated a day before the Dussehra festival and is an extension of the Sindhi Guru Darbar Temple, one of the oldest Hindu temples in the UAE. The foundation of the temple was laid in February 2020.

Trustee of the Hindu Temple, Raju Shroff informed that the idea behind the community center in Dubai’s religious village is to bring people together and make them feel at home.

A newly launched Hindu temple in Dubai has 16 different deities, a community center to host several events and activities, and a yet-to-be-opened outreach program platform. According to the temple’s official website, Dubai’s new Hindu temple will be open from 6:30 am to 8 pm. Moreover, the temple in Dubai can easily accommodate 1,000 to 1,200 worshipers every day.

“The idea of ​​having a temple is not only for a place of worship but also to be a center of knowledge and also a platform for an awareness program. We will do that in January, once the temple is strengthened and maintained,” he said.

Welcoming people of all religions, the temple has already had its soft opening on September 1, where thousands of visitors were allowed to get a glimpse of the interior of the white marble temple. It has decorative columns, Arabic and Hindu geometric designs on the facade, and bells on the ceiling.

The temple management introduced a QR code-based booking system through its website at its soft opening.

The temple has received many visitors from day one, especially on weekends. Restricted entry has been controlled through appointments with QR codes for crowd management and ensuring social distancing, the report said.

Located in what is described as the ‘Village of Worship’ in Jebel Ali which has several churches and the Guru Nanak Darbar Gurudwara, the temple also housed the Guru Granth Sahib, the holy book of the Sikhs, in August.
