Plans to expand a Hindu worship center in Livermore are drawing opposition from neighbors.

The Shiva-Vishnu Temple on Arrowhead Avenue wants to triple its size, on Friday leaders said they plan to press forward.

The temple has been there for 23 years, before some of the homes around it were built.

Temple leaders said it has about 300 devotees but events can draw as many as 10,000 people.
