That's in Toronto?!


The Swaminarayan Mandir Hindu Temple opened in Toronto today (or just north-west of Toronto, I suppose), and it is an awesome sight.
The entire project was created by the Hindu community both in Canada and in India. About 2,000 Indian craftsmen were hired to bring the temple to life. About 100 were brought to Toronto to construct the temple while about 1,800 were hired in India to carve out some of the intricate, detailed carvings that adorn the temple. (From CTV.ca)
I'm astonished something like this has actually been built in Canada. This isn't too far from Pearson Airport, so I'm hoping I'll have a chance to swing by and get a look when I go home next week.

The CTV.ca story is worth checking out, as they have more pictures that show the intricate design.
