Claiming to be the first-ever Hindu Temple in the Dakotas, Hindu Temple of SiouxLand opened two weeks ago in a new building just 2 miles northwest of Tea.

The Temple hopes to serve an ever-growing Hindu population in the region while enriching the social and cultural diversity of the Sioux Falls area.

Board of Trustees Chair Archana Chatterjee and board member/volunteer priest Chandradhar Dwivedi share news of the new Temple and the upcoming Festival of Lights (Diwali).
