Temple History

Hindu Society of Australia was officially launched in 1982. In 1982, Hindu society adopted a constitution and became an incorporated body, with a principle objective of constructing a Hindu Temple in Victoria. In 1984, the society bought a land of 14.35 acres in Carrum Downs for the construction of a temple for $72300. The temple ground breaking ceremony was conducted on 1986. In 1988, Springvale council issued permission to build a temple in the site. The foundation stones were cut in India and was blessed by priests from temple in India before transported to Australia. A temporary building was constructed on the site and Poojas were commenced on the site.

The Maha kumbhabhishekam was organised on 22nd May 1994. The construction of the temple continued for the next ten years.

This temple is conceived and built as a traditional Hindu temple in which Pujas and rituals are conducted similar to that of temples in India. After the construction of the large auditorium and Canteen, celebrations of marriages have become a common feature here. If Hindus in Melbourne crave for an Indian temple atmosphere or want to celebrate Hindu festivals like deepavali , holi, Ramnavami etc. with the community, this is where they should be.
