It's taken almost 10 years and more than $3 million, but a Hindu temple in Cary is now officially open.

Thursday the idol of the Hindu god Venkateswara was moved into place. Priests purified the temple with water and fire.

The grand opening celebration will continue through Sunday. Both Hindu and non-Hindu people are encouraged to come experience the temple.
