A nearly 30-year journey of faith for Lake County's Hindu community will be fulfilled when the bell tolls for the first time this weekend, beckoning devotees to their new temple near Grayslake.

Three days of festivities begin Friday, marking the long-awaited unveiling of the Indian Cultural Association's Hindu Mandir, or temple, on roughly 20 acres at 20444 Peterson Road."It's totally a dream," said an emotionally choked Anil Aggarwal, who has overseen the temple's construction for six months.
