June 22nd 1986

About four hundred people from Atlanta, and neighbouring states including Alabama, Tennesse, Florida and Carolinas, braved the hot and humid weather on this Sunday to witness the ground breaking ceremony of Hindu Temple Of Atlanta. It was the first major event of this temple and the sacred ceremony was conduced by, Sri Janakiramsastry from Stroudsberg Pa. Sri Swamy Jyothirmayananda of Florida in an enlighting talk stressed the importance of Hindu temples and gave guidelines to help children. Though it seems like it is tenacity of few, it is largely the generousity of many that became the guiding force on this day.
