For someone who appreciated architecture

This is a very unique place I'm the GTA, the fact that they have brought in the material from all over the world makes it even more special.

We visited the temple in July 2015 when our family visited us from India. It was a great Spiritual start to their vacation and they loved it. The temple is peaceful, calm and relaxing.
