To keep pace with the growing needs of the community to serve the student body and the devotee base. There is a need for an additional Multi purpose facility with modern amenities for the community activities. Physical spaces are important in making and keeping the bonds with the community and maintaining Hindu Mandir to be the nerve center of the community.

Separate physical space dedicated to cultural/educational activities will establish HSMN as the twin cities go to places related to culture and education.


To fulfill this need the current administration has initiated the project called Dare to Dream which encompasses a new education, cultural heritage and event center. This will be a 1 to 2 structure building approximately of the same space as the temple or bigger details yet to be decided at the end of the feasibility phase. The building will house (15-20) Classrooms, Assembly Hall, Indoor/outdoor Dining Hall/amphitheater - Event Space, Art Gallery, Hangout Lounge/Space, Library, Walking Trail, Playground, Yoga/Meditation Hall, Garden and more. The vision is to start building this year and have the project completed in 3-5 years dependent on funds raised.
