The Hindu Temple of Las Vegas was established in April 2001. A group of motivated individuals in 1994, who had made Las Vegas their home, felt the need for a place of worship and practice of Sanatana dharma in their adopted land. They had already started meeting in small groups at different homes to conduct the commonly performed pujas and festivals. They came together and established a non-profit corporation called The Hindu Society of Nevada and
started raising funds for the land and later construction of the Temple.
The land was purchased at the present site in 1997. The temple construction was started in 2000 and completed in 2001.
