    After a decade of serving the Hindu and Jain communities in the greater Louisville area, it’s time for a fresh start for The Hindu Temple of Kentucky. After extensive renovations, this year the Indian community is celebrating with a grand re-inauguration ceremony called “MahaKumbhabishekam” on Sunday, June 12 after a week of festivities. The celebration will begin this coming Sunday, June 5 and feature daily prayers and cultural programs to commemorate the Temple and its unique contributions to the diversity of the Louisville diaspora.

    The temple, located at 4213 Accomack Drive, started 1986 as prayer hall, primarily providing a place for the very small community of Indian professionals at that time, to meet, pray and sing hymns. As the Louisville Indian community grew, the congregation gained strength and the community built a traditional-style temple with authentic Indian architecture and style in 1999. The temple, which is unique in the state, has been compared to larger temples in Chicago, Pittsburgh and even India. Over the past decade, the temple has served as an educational resource of both the Hindu culture and traditional architecture and art. The members of the temple are also actively involved in several community service projects and promoting inter-faith relationships.

    Mayor Greg Fischer has made a proclamation declaring June 12 as the “Temple Re-Inauguration Celebration Day,” and will address the temple’s community on both June 5 and June 12.
