About the Temple

In the year 2005 during peak summer, some friends who regularly gathered in a community prayer meeting in Plano, North Texas discussed the need for a larger space for the temple.

With everyone’s agreement on the matter, a group of 20 people named the organization and met frequently to hunt for land to establish the temple.

In the early days of 2006, a committee called the Hindu Temple of North Texas(HTNT) was formed with a temporary space for pooja, and they named the place Sri Ganesha Temple.

In March 2006, the temple was started at West Parker Road, Plano, a few min drive from Highway 75.

Prana Prathishta of several deities began starting from Lord Sri Murugan and his consorts Sri Valli and Devayani in November 2006.

In April 2007, the installation of other deities progressed efficiently.

The committee then met the local bodies to make arrangements for the necessary certification as a charitable, nonprofit organization and filed the documents

Further fund collections allowed the committee to procure 10 acres of land at 6428 and 6508 K-Ave, Plano, which was only 2 mins drive from the current temple location. 

The temple authorities then began constructing a huge Sri Ganesha Temple with the installation of the deities, a learning center, a Kalyana Mandapam, a parking lot, and a cultural center.

In the year 2009 in November, the new temple was ready and the deities were transported in a grand procession, and regular prayers began in the new temple there onwards.
