Videsallo Hindu Devaalayaalu – Rastra Sahakaaram
With an estimated NRI population of more than 35 million people, mostly Hindus, the demand for more and more Hindu temples abroad is raising year after year. It is estimated that USA alone has over 500 Hindu temples from a very small arrangement in a room to a rented premises like a function Hall/ Godown converted into a temple to a constructedtemple structure. Cities like New Jersey or San Jose, or Dallas with large Hindu presence have atleast over 50 Hindu temples. So is the case in UK or Australia etc.
Many a time, a Group of people with devotion decide to raise a temple and they start executing their plan in raising funds on one side and developing temple plans like bringing Deities, Priests etc on other side. And they approach their own known persons and some times concerned Devastanams in India.
For the first time in India, Endowments Dept , Govt of AP proposes to develop a Scheme Videsallo Hindu Devaalayaalu – Rastra Sahakaaram by which it will give the necessary guidance to the Promoters/ Management from the initial stages and also to the existing Temples for maintenance
