NEW YORK, U.S.A., May 10, 2001: A US$2 million Hindu temple modeled after the famous Sri Ranganatha Temple of Srirangam in Tamil Nadu has come up in Pomona, New York, built by the Sri Ranganatha Seva Samiti. From May 23 until May 27, the temple will be formally consecrated. The complex, that stands on a five-acre plot, has a 6,000- square-foot temple, 5000-square-foot hall for religious, social and cultural functions and children's classes and library, and parking for 200 cars. The sanctum sanctorum features Lord Ranganatha or Lord Narayana, the form of Lord Vishnu in a state of repose on a bed of the five-headed serpent, Adisesha, the form found in Sriranagam temple.
