On August 11, 1998, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that a blessing of the ground ceremony took place on August 9th in Pewaukee, WI. The approved worship center, set to be two-stories and 22,000 square feet, will serve approximately 1000 families in Wisconsin. Many of the Hindus in the area had to make regular sojourns to Chicago because there was no temple in Wisconsin. There will also be a smaller temple on the site for Jains to worship and meet.
