Recently, we were visited by Sri Ronur Murali Bhattar, chief priest of The Hindu Temple of Minnesota that we know so well. You can visit their site here: www.hindumandirmn.org. He had just conducted a wedding on another island. After the ceremony, he and the married couple's family wished to visit Kauai Aadheenam for blessings.
Here are some more recent photos from Jiva in Bengaluru, depicting the hand carving that is nearing completion. These are some of the final hand carved pieces of the main temple structure. Any surrounding work, such as the perimeter wall, is including machine carved work, making for a much faster process.
