Designed to Honour Mothers, Plans in progress to build Mata Hindu Temple in Clemmons, US

Mata Hindu Temple will be a unique temple in the U.S.A. It is dedicated to the divine mother.

Forsyth County, October 1, 2016: It was a shock to the group planning the site of future Mata Hindu Temple in Clemmons when bullet holes in the sign marking the property were reported. Police still haven’t found a suspect.

“It’s been a very nurturing place, and I felt like when our sign was shot, it was very unnatural. It didn’t seem like something that would happen in a place like this,” said Shubha Mishra, Mata Hindu Temple Board of Trustees.

“At the end of December, we should have the entire temple building ready to look at it from the outside, and maybe brickwork too would be completed at that time. And the next six months after that we will work inside part of the temple,” said Sanjay Aher, Aher Builders president to the news portal.

According to, Mata Hindu Temple is designed to honor mothers. In Hindi, “mata” means mother. “It will be a unique temple in the U.S.A. It is dedicated to the divine mother. So you can imagine how a normal mother gives love and compassion,” said Swami Rajendran, Mata Hindu Temple vice chairman.
