Oklahoma City's Hindu Temple

Oklahoma, for a long time, did not have a big enough Indian community to afford a proper Hindu temple. The community used a glorified barn a long, long away from the city. One nice benefit of the rural location is a great, unobstructed view. This, for example, was the view from the temple on Monday evening:
But over time, enough money was collected. And parts of the temple were built as money came in. Now, the temple is now nearly complete. This is the gopuram (spire) that marks the entrance to the temple.
And a close-up of one of the reliefs:
The official opening is in June. It's at 7200 N. Coltrane in Oklahoma City.
