On January 26, 1999, The Courier-Journal of Louisville published an article on the expansion project of the Hindu Temple of Kentucky, located in Jefferson County. The expansion project will feature six new gopurams to be constructed by nine temple artisans from India. Each gopuram, which is 10 feet wide and 25 feet high, will be designed by an architect whose family has been designing temples for 1100 years. The $1 million cost of the project is being financed by approximately 500 families in the local Hindu community. The installation of deities is set for June 16th, 1999.
