On October 4, Dubai will celebrate the formal opening of its newest Hindu Temple. It is a home of 16 deities, a knowledge room, a community centre for outreach activities, and a friendly environment for people of all faiths. Recently, we visited the new Hindu temple in Dubai. So come, do the virtual darshan with us!
God’s Of All Religious Beliefs In Hinduism
The spacious octagonal prayer hall comprises 16 podiums with intricate designs, each dedicated to a different deity from around India. The gods of the southern Indian subcontinent are sculpted in dark stone. On the centre platform, Shiva, the Hindu god, will be joined by 15 other deities. Aside from the South Indian deities Guruvayoorappan and Ayyappan, other gods like Ganesha and Krishna and the Hindu goddess Mahalakshmi would also be worshipped inside the prayer hall.
The Guru Granth Sahib, the Sikh scripture, will have its own space in the shrine. In addition, Tulsi (holy basil) plants, mundan (tonsuring), and other spiritual observances now have their own special platform in a specially set location.
