Karya Siddhi Hanuman Temple
Construction on the temple started around 2007 for Hindus in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and completed in 2009.
Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji met with Dallas and Houston Satsang groups on August 11th, Saturday 2007 at Datta Temple, Baton Rouge. Sri Swamiji directed devotees at that gathering to find land in Dallas to build Marakata Karya Siddhi Hanuman Temple.
In the fall of 2007, after a metroplex wide search, one 10 acre piece of land was identified in Frisco, Texas, a fast-growing but relatively unknown city in a good location. The details of the land were sent to Pujya Swamiji who approved the purchase. However, the land could only be purchase if proper zoning to allow for religious use was obtained. Within a short 3 month period, zoning was approved, loan was sanctioned, and the land was officially purchased.
Pujya Swamiji blessed the land for the first time in April 2008 and reviewed plans for an initial buidling or cultural hall. Pujya Swamiji’s visit was short, but His blessings and energy remainded as the Construction of the 10,000 square ft building, parking lot, boundary wall and road expansion began in September 2008. During the construction phase, a trailer was rented to serve as a temporary Temple for the Hanuman devotees in the metroplex. A beautiful pink Hanuman from Jaipur - beloved by the Trinidad devotees for many years was sent to Frisco by Sri Swamiji - showered blessings upon devotees in the Temple trailer. Karya Siddhi Hanuman Temple was also blessed with an enchanting 5ft tall Hanuman sculpture on Friday, April 11, 2008 - just in time for the first Hanuman Jayanti celebrations by the temple.
Pujya Swamiji inaugurated the 10,000 square foot building (including classrooms and a kitchen), known as Hanuman Cultural Center, in July 2009, and the temple officially opened with the praana prathistha of Lord Hanuman. For 6 years, with the divine blessings of Pujya Swamiji and tremendous support of the community who felt the divine energy in the modest building, Hanuman Cultural Center served as a temple, an annadana hall, and a school for many classes including Datta Class, music, art, yoga and more.
With Pujya Swamiji’s blessing and guidance, funding was approved for the consturction of a main temple, and the architecture and design phase begain in 2012. . Architect, Thimmaya Konganda of Epsilon Architecture, designed the building with the guidance of Subramanya Sthapathi of Chennai and with guidance and approval of Pujya Swamiji at each phase.
Pujya Swamiji conducted the Ground Breaking ceremony for the 33000 square feet Karya Siddhi Hanuman Temple. A local general contractor, AUI, completed the construction of the building while Subramanya Sthapathy’s team of around 30 shilpis (artisans) from India completed the inside garbhagudi indianization as well as the 3 gopura on the exterior. The main Hanuman garbha gudi is made of granite. The granite was cut and carved in India and shipped in 30 containers. Four artisans from Indian who specialize in granite were brought to install the granite garbhagudi layer by layer. Even with unprecedented rains, the construction took only 2 years to complete, including building, parking lot, and landscaping.
The Maha Kumbhabhishekam was conducted by His Holiness Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji on July 23, 2015 with approximately 10,000 people in attendance. The presiding deity is Lord Hanuman along with Ram Parivaar. Praana Prathishta was also completed for Ganapathy, Subramanya Swami, Dattatreya, Lord Shiva, Durga Devi, and Navagrahas.
