Hindus will break ground in February for the first temple of their faith in Montgomery County.

The Woodlands Design Review Board recently approved designs for the temple, which will be built on 8.3 acres of land at the intersection of Woodlands Parkway and South Forest Gate, about seven miles west of Interstate 45.

About 150 Hindu families live in The Woodlands and an estimated 250 other families live in the area — including Tomball, Conroe and northern Harris County.
