Our History

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. Panditji Gopal Krishna Panchangam was the first priest to conduct various ceremonies at the Temple since it was opened in April 2001. Over the years, the Navagraha Temple and priest residences were built with the generous donations from the Las Vegas community. In 2012 Panditji Brijesh Kumar Raval started performing pujas at the Temple. The Las Vegas community continues to grow and in 2016, Panditji Vishnuvardhana Chakrapanachar started working at the Temple performing various pujas.

Now the temple management is focusing on converting the patio area into an events hall to celebrate weddings and other celebrations for the devotees, complete the pavement for additional parking and build a Hanuman Mandir.

The mission of the Hindu Temple of Las Vegas is to pass on an everlasting place of worship for future generations to understand Hinduism and Sanathan Dharma. This Temple of God will promote religious, moral, and Spiritual growth for children and adults based on Hindu and Jain Scriptures by celebrating Hindu traditions and preserving Indian Culture. It is the moral duty of each and every devotee to participate and promote the mission of our Temple. Be generous and donate. Your donation will be celebrated for generations.....
