The new temple in Jebel Ali is expected to be open for worshippers by October 2022, in time for Diwali
The new temple is an extension of the Sindhi Guru Darbar Temple in Souq Baniyas, Bur Dubai, one of the oldest Hindu temples in the country, open since the 1950s.
The new temple is being constructed adjacent to the Guru Nanak Darbar in Jebel Ali, making the locality a multi-religious corridor in Dubai.
The temple will be home to 11 Hindu deities, catering to religious beliefs of Hindu communities belonging to all parts of India.
The temple’s foundation stone was laid in February last year and the architecture is said to have a distinct Arabian look. Supplied photos
