Ganesh Temple Utah

The Sri Ganesh Hindu Temple of Utah is a Hindu temple located in South Jordan, Utah. It is the first and only Hindu temple in the state of Utah. The temple was founded in 2003 by a group of Hindu families who wanted to create a place where they could worship and celebrate their faith.

The temple is dedicated to the Hindu deity Ganesha, who is the remover of obstacles. The main shrine in the temple houses a murti (statue) of Ganesh that was sculpted in India and brought to Utah. The temple also has shrines dedicated to other Hindu deities, such as Lakshmi, Saraswati, and Shiva.

The Sri Ganesha Hindu Temple of Utah is open to the public. Visitors are welcome to attend pujas (prayer services) and festivals that are held at the temple. The temple also offers classes on Hinduism and yoga.

In general, the Indian community in Utah is drawn to the Temple, since it’s the center for gathering for festivals. For example, if somebody moves to Utah, and they follow Hindu traditions, invariably they will come to the Temple in the first few days. The Sri Ganesha Temple has the biggest Hindu congregation in the state.

Indian have festivals almost every single day. For us Hindus, birth is a festival, a baby going into the cradle for the first time is a festival, a baby eating for the first time is a festival, and when a child writes for the first time, it is a festival. Indian celebrate when the days get longer. We basically celebrate everything! 

The Temple was dedicated in 2003 and expanded in 2015 to support the substantial increase in the Asian Indian population in the valley. The effects of the pandemic have increased the Indian population in Utah further.
