A Hindu temple currently under construction in Abu Dhabi will be completed in 2017, its development team has announced.
B R Shetty, vice chairman and CEO of NMC Healthcare and chairman of the Temple Coordination Committee, said the project is being funded privately.
Land to build the temple on has been donated by the government of Abu Dhabi, Arabian Business reported, citing Reuters.
An announcement pertaining to the land’s allocation was made in August 2015, following a visit to the UAE by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Remarking on the project, Shetty said: “The UAE is a great example of religious tolerance with people of different nationalities living in harmony here.”
