Temple History

The Hindu Temple of St. louis located in the west suburbs of the St. Louis and only fifteen minutes away from the St. Louis Arch, a most famous land mark of the St. Louis. Please navigate through menu to know the detail of services and directions.

The Hindu temple of St. Louis was formally registered as a not for profit organization in the state of Missouri on March 7th, 1988.

Bhoomi Pooja (ground breaking ceremony) was performed on April 21,1990. The architectural plans were drawn by the famous V GANAPATI STHAPATI and Associates of CHENNAI, INDIA. After the completion of Phase I, the formal inauguration of the Temple was done on Nov 8,1991. Initially we had only pictures of the deities in the temple. Later SAMPROKSHANA (initiation) of CHARABIMBAS (UTSAVA VIGRAHAS) made of panchaloha was celebrated on Jan 21, 1995.

The construction of Phase II was started on July 12, 1995. Eleven shilpis (artisans) came from India on Jan 21, 1997 and worked hard to complete the project. The PRANA PRATHISHTHAPANA and KUMBHABHISHEKAM celebrations were done on July 6, 1998. The phase III construction including RAJAGOPURAM was immediately started. Finally NAVAGRAHA PRANA PRATHISHTHAPANA and RAJAGOPURNA KUMBHABHISHEKAM took place on July 8, 2000.

Temple did bhoomi pooja for north-south expansion to include Sri Ayyappa Shrine and Sri Kanyaka Parameswari shrines in May 5, 2011 and performed Prana Prathista June 5-9, 2014. Temple also installed Sri Hanuman and moved Navagraha's to Sri Kanyaka Parameswari Area and performed Prana Prathista on June 7, 2014.

Temple started another dream project to construct Multipurpose community center and land development with bhoomi pooja on August 16, 2014 with a goal to complete the project by 2017.
