In Richmond, just outside of Vancouver, the Sri Ganesha Society of B. C. is creating a new Ganesha Temple. To avoid many of the zoning problems that they might ordinarily face, the purchased a church, tore it down to the foundation and built their temple on the old foundation. Under the zoning laws of that area, they need only follow the restrictions that were placed on the original church, which were much more lenient than they are now. A similar approach has been very effectively used for a number of temples in the US as well. Our appreciation to Manickam Senthivel for these excellent photos.
