Anand Mahindra, an industrialist, posted a video on Twitter of the Hindu Temple of Dubai, which was officially inaugurated on October 5. The temple, which is located in the emirate's "worship village," combines Indian and Arabic architectural styles. The temple now formally opened its doors to worshippers from across the UAE.

Anand Mahindra, 67, called the temple "Magnificient" and said that he will visit it on his next trip to Dubai. "I believe this magnificent Temple was formally inaugurated today. Auspicious timing. Will make sure to visit it on my next trip to Dubai." Mr Mahindra wrote on Twitter.

The official opening ceremony was marked by a powerful message of tolerance, peace, and harmony, bringing together people of various faiths.

In a peace salutation, priests chanted "Om shanti shanti Om," and musicians playing tabla and dhol — Indian drums — greeted visitors as they entered.

Jebel Ali's 'worship village' now houses nine religious shrines, including seven churches, the Guru Nanak Darbar Sikh Gurudwara, and a new Hindu house of worship.

The 70,000-square-foot house of worship was announced in 2020, shortly after the city was hit by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The temple features detailed hand carvings, ornate pillars, brass spires and striking lattice screens that blend Indian and Arabic architecture.
