NBL is currently working on the design of a $41 million BAPS (Bochasanwasi Akshar Purushottam Sanstha) Hindu Temple which will be built in 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, which 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.
