Looking Out From the Garage

Photo Friday... Where in the World?

BAPS in LilburnWho would have thought that the largest Hindu Temple outside of India would be in Lilburn, GA?  I live here and love this area, but I was surprised to find out that little tidbit.

When it was under construction, many of us were wondering what was going into the spot at the corner of Lawrenceville Hwy and Rockbridge Rd.  There was a giant gantry crane and more concrete that one could almost imagine.

Before the temple was complete, hundreds of volunteers spent thousands of hours making everything perfect.  As we toured it, we could see thousands of figures carved into the building, inside and out.  EACH of these was polished to a gleam, by hand.

The temple is available for tours.  It is well worth it to see.
