As you all are aware, Bharatiya Mandir has completed 22 very successful years since it was opened in the year 1993. We extend our sincere thanks for all your support, devotion and commitment to the Mandir.
Today Bharatiya Mandir has become the biggest landmark and a community centre for the people of Indian origin. It’s a matter of pride to disclose to you that Bharatiya Mandir has acquired four properties, adjacent to the temple.
Bharatiya Mandir Management Committee acknowledges and thanks everyone who has contributed towards the Mandir activities voluntarily, financially or in any other way.
Bharatiya Mandir started as a dream in 1991 and finished as a reality in June 1993. When the houses were purchased, there were no funds on hand but with the moral and financial support of the devotees, and assistance from the National Bank of New Zealand, the committee was able to complete purchase of the properties at 252 and 254 Balmoral Road.
The Bharatiya Mandir is built at a site purified with blessing of vedic mantras recited by Saints and Acharyas. This epitome of love and worship will continue to inspire, improve, preserve and promote the Hindu way of life amongst the future generations of Hindus on this land.
A time capsule was established and placed on 20th September 1991(Shila Ropan Day) in the Bharatiya Mandir foundation along with the following letter with the wishes of completing the Construction of this Bharatiya Mandir within a short period.
