Arulmigu Ganesh Hindu Temple, Jordan

History : On January 18, 2003 the Deseret News reported that “little more than a stone’s throw from the comparative behemoth that Latter-day Saints know as the Jordan River Temple, the Sri Ganesha Temple will serve a growing Hindu population along the Wasatch Front, not only as a place of worship, but as a community gathering place. While the two temples are worlds apart in the mode and practice of their religious worship, both provide a focal point for the highest ideals their members espouse... Some 300 families along the Wasatch Front are part of the growing Hindu presence in Utah, according to Indra Neelameggham. The basement of her South Jordan home now serves as a temporary temple, and houses the Lord Ganesha deity that will take center stage at the new temple about a mile away.”
This is the time of Pongal, a kind of Indian Thanksgiving, and many families on Wednesday cooked new rice, sugar cane, dry fruits and milk in a new clay pot, purposely letting the frothy mixture boil over to symbolize their good fortune... Most celebrated in their homes, surrounded by family and friends, but a small group gathered at the soon-to-be completed Sri Ganesha Hindu Temple and India Cultural Center in South Jordan... Utah’s Hindu population is relatively small, only 400 families, and American habits require them to hold big dinners in the evening, rather than mid-afternoon as they would in India... But as much as possible, these families try to continue their Indian traditions and festivals. And the temple, which they hope will become a central gathering place for all Utah Hindus, is a vital step in maintaining their identity.”
