Holy crap that’s big. Pretty Too.

I love Near East Asian/Indian architecture. This place is going to stand out for sure.

Philip Warner watches the white limestone wonder rising across the street from his vantage point at the UPS Store on Rockbridge Road in Lilburn.

The store manager keeps a pair of binoculars handy to observe construction of one of the largest Hindu temples in the United States.

“I think it’s amazing. We have a landmark that’s not the Big Chicken,” Warner said, referring to the Marietta landmark. “We have Cobb County beat.”

Customers constantly comment on the towering sanctuary that will open in late August — the closest metro Atlanta may ever come to having its own Taj Mahal.

With hand-carved stone spires that tower 75 feet, it will be the tallest building in Lilburn, dominating the intersection of Rockbridge Road and Lawrenceville Highway.

    I live pretty close to this temple and drive by it many times a week. It’s so beautiful. Glad to see such a success not just for the BAPS sect, but for Lilburn in general. Selfishly, I’m hoping this temple spurs the opening of a few awesome Indian restaurants nearby. 🙂
