Texas (USA):A 34,000 square-foot MarakataKarya Siddhi Hanuman Temple has opened in Frisco,Texas according to a report published in Punjab News Express. The temple has reportedly cost over $11 million.

Apart from MarakataKarya Siddhi Hanuman, who is the main deity, the temple also houses other Hindu deities. The idols of Lord Ganapati, Lord Shiva, Goddess Rajeshwari, Lord Venkateshwara, Lord Dattatreya, Lord Subramanya, Lord Ayyapa, Lord Nagendra and Lord Rama with his family are worshiped daily. The Aarti (lighting of a lamp) is offered to the deities twice a day and devotees are offered free lunch every Saturday.

The temple has a Cultural Center and conducts classes on Yoga, art, Carnatic music, Kuchipudi dance, and Bhajans. Apart from this, various Indian languages like Hindi, Telugu, Marathi, Tamil, Kannada, and Gujarati are taught as well. Classes on chanting of Bhagavad-Gita and Sri Vishnu Sahasranama are also held.

Lord Hanuman is one of the most important deities of Hinduism. He is considered as an avatara (incarnation) of Lord Shiva. He is known for his immense physical strength as well as very high level of intelligence. He is considered both as a Jnani (realized non-duality) and a bhakta (devotee). Hindus worship lord Hanuman for gaining strength, wisdom, confidence and protection from enemies.

The MarakataKarya Siddhi Hanuman Temple has a homa-kunda (fire-pit), a Yoga center and six classrooms. The temple has been built under the guidance of Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji of Avadhoota Datta Peetham of Mysore, India, according to the report.

Commending the efforts of the temple leaders, Rajan Zed, the President of Universal Society of Hinduism, noted that it is very important to pass on the concepts and traditions of Hindu spirituality to the coming generations and he hoped this new temple would help in this direction.
