Hindu Temple Opens in Jabal Ali

Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, UAE's Minister of Tolerance and Coexistence inaugurated Dubai's second Hindu temple in Jebel Ali. 

Over 200 dignitaries, including heads of diplomatic missions, religious leaders of several faiths, were also present at the opening ceremony on Tuesday.

Moreover, the temple in Dubai has a whooping capacity to easily accommodate around 1,000 to 1,200 worshippers on a daily basis.

Located in what is described as the 'Worship Village' in Jebel Ali which houses several churches and the Guru Nanak Darbar Gurudwara, the temple had also installed the Guru Granth Sahib, the holy book of the Sikhs, in August.

Most of the deities are installed in the main prayer hall with a large 3D-printed pink lotus unfurling across the central dome.

According to the official temple website, Dubai's new Hindu temple will be open from 6:30 am to 8 pm.

Worshippers are encouraged to pre-book slots online.
