On June 16, 1999, The Courier-Journal reported that there will be five days of ceremonies and celebrations from June 16-20 to dedicate the new Hindu Temple of Kentucky in eastern Jefferson County. The new building, which took 12 years and $1.2 million to construct, consists of 6 large and 7 small interior temples. The first Hindu Temple of Kentucky, which opened in 1989, is adjacent to the new complex and will be used for social gatherings. About 80 percent of the 400 Indian families who live in the Louisville area are Hindu, and approximately 100 of those families belong to the Hindu Temple of Kentucky.
