About the Temple

For praising the vibrance of Hindu culture, to conserve Hindu customs and traditions the Hindu Society of Minnesota was formulated in 1978.

A 100-year-old church in Minnesota was noticed as the place of worship for the members of the society.

On Feb 1979 a purchase agreement was signed, and three-member couples contributed $5000 each for a total of $15000 to rise the temple.

The obsolete church turned into the Hindu Society of Minnesota’s new Hindu Mandir.

1st renovation of the temple took place in 1979, after which Lord Ganesha ji’s was installed in the year 1983, and later Mahavir’s murti was installed in 1984.

2nd renovation took place in 1986, and later developments made the temple expand which led to looking for a big new plot to accommodate a large no of devotees.

Again a 80 acres land in the city of Maple Grove was chosen as the new Hindu temple.

Events like 

  • Temple’s new site was laid in 1999
  • Sudrashana Home and Sita Kalyanam were held in 2002
  • Sri Krishna Mahotsavan in 2003

By 2003, a committee of 10 trustees had grown to 130 in number, this led to a new committee called Trustee Executive Council (TEC).

On the new 43,000 square-foot Mandir a revolutionary ceremony was held on Oct 4, 2003, in Maple Grove.


This temple is divine with the blessing of Sri Ganesha, Jagannath, Varadaraja, Sri Devi & Bhudevi, Lord Sri Rama Parivar, Shivaji Parivar, Subramanya, and Ayyappa.

Sri Satyanarayana and Navagrahas, Adinatha, Parshawa Nath and Sri Mahavir, Dattatreya, Mata Durga and Saraswati, Sri Bhairava and Vishwakarma.
