ALBAWABA - The largest Hindu temple is now receiving visitors in Dubai.  The newest Hindu temple formally opened its doors to worshippers on Tuesday evening and large numbers of the UAE expatriate community are expected to visit the complex.

The 'worship village' in Jebel Ali now houses nine religious shrines, including seven churches and the Guru Nanak Darbar Sikh Gurudwara.

Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Minister of Tolerance and Coexistence, inaugurated the temple by lighting a lantern in the temple's multi-purpose hall on the ground floor according to the UAE daily.
