Temple History

On 25th April 1986 Hindu Ahlyan Sangham came into existence for the purpose of building a temple for the growing Indian population in Brisbane. From 1987 to 1990 the committee put all their efforts to raise sufficient funds to purchase land for the construction of the temple. In 1990, the committee purchased 4.5 Acres of land in South Maclean, 35 km south of Brisbane City. An application to construct a temple was submitted to the Beaudesert Shire Council and was subsequently approved in 1992.

The foundation for the temple was laid on 10th June 1993. Deities and shine doors were procured from South India. The temple also hired Indian sculptors. The consecration ceremony was held on 5th February 1995. The temple is built according to traditional Indian style of temple construction.
