Hindu temple erected in Mississippi; builders hope to draw throngs

A 3,500-square-foot Hindu structure has been constructed according to ancient rules of temple design, known as "agama sastra," near Brandon, Mississippi. The structure, which was made from all-natural materials such as granite, wood, straw and marble, was formed by Indian artisans.

Members of the Hindu Society of Mississippi hope that the new temple will be a draw for many Hindus and tourists alike in the Deep South. Notably, temple organizers are expecting as many as 1,000 people at the temple's upcoming dedication.
