RENO, Nev. (AP) - A groundbreaking ceremony is planned in
southeast Reno on Sunday for the first Hindu temple in northern
Nevada.

Temple spokesman Rajan Zed says the local Hindu community has
been worshiping for years in a rented building under the umbrella
of a tax-exempt organization, the Hindu Temple of Northern Nevada
Inc.

He says plans for the new building on Model Way, off Neil Road, call for traditional ancient Hindu architecture. In addition to a sanctuary,
it will include a courtyard, garden, community hall and classrooms.

Zed says the only existing Hindu temples in Nevada are in Las
Vegas. He says there are an estimated 600 Hindu families in
northern and western Nevada.
