On September 10, 2000, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that "after years of making regular treks to Illinois to worship, Wisconsin Hindus finally have a temple close to home, a $4.5 million facility nestled among more than 20 acres of woods in Pewaukee...After raising about $2.5 million from the state's Hindu population to build the first phase of the temple, the Hindu Temple of Wisconsin's board of directors has begun a $250,000 to $500,000 fund-raising push for a second phase of construction that will put the finishing touches on the worship center...Temple leaders hope to hold a grand opening for the temple, near I-94, in May 2001."
