ABU DHABI, January 5, 2021 (Khaleej Times): The construction of the Capital's first traditional Hindu temple in Abu Dhabi is progressing rapidly. It is expected to be completed in 2023. Work on the hand-carved stone pieces for the BAPS Hindu Mandir being done in India and the foundation of the temple in Abu Dhabi's Abu Mureikha were both on track despite the challenges of the pandemic. The major portion of the stonework has been done in the Indian states of Rajasthan and Gujarat. The sandstone is from Rajasthan and marble from Italy. The temple will have seven spires and five domes. The complex will have a visitor's centre, prayer halls, library, classroom, community centre, majlis, amphitheater, play areas, gardens, books and gift shops, food court and other facilities.

The slide show at "source" above shows progress.
