NBL is currently working on the design of a $41 million BAPS (Bochasanwasi Akshar Purushottam Sanstha) Hindu Temple. Located on Adlington Road, Kemps Creek near the new airport, this facility will replace the previous centre in Rosehill, as a response to the increasing community demands.
Recently approved by the Sydney Western City Planning Panel, the new development will include a 25-metre tall Mandir, or Temple, two two-storey community buildings, a carpark and extensive gardens.
While some components will take 9 years to construct, the first stages proposed completion is in 2023. This will involve moving 400,000 cubic metres of earth to accommodate a carpark, gardens and the two community buildings. This will include a 2,000 seat auditorium, kitchens and a 1,000 seat dining room along with teaching spaces.
The gardens which are approximately 1/3 of the 25 acre site, will be inviting, providing a sanctuary of garden experiences for all, including the general public. It will incorporate formal gardens, playgrounds, as well as barbecue and leisure areas.
This is a unique project to be part of and NBL look forward to seeing it brought to life in the coming years.
