On March 2, 2005 the San Bernardino County Sun reported, "Hindus rejoiced Wednesday night as plans were approved for the only Hindu temple between Riverside and Las Vegas. The five-member Planning Commission unanimously voted to reverse its January rejection of the Krishna Valley Temple [on] Apple Valley Road. The approval was a victory for a growing Hindu population forced to move meetings from home to home or drive hours to the closest temple... Unless someone appeals the temple decision to the Town Council, construction on the 2.35-acre-lot can begin later this year. A 7,950-square-foot temple and 7,415-square-foot cultural center will be built in a residential area containing several hundred homes. The building will be 18 feet tall, with its highest spire 36 feet."
