India will begin the world’s first global temple of Hinduism on June 1, the Hindu Times reported on Wednesday, citing sources.
India’s government has yet to announce the site of the temple, which will be built in the southern city of Jaipur.
The temple is to be located at the intersection of the road and the road on the southern edge of the city, the paper said, adding that it will be a three-storey structure with a total of 500 rooms, including a library.
India plans to host an international conference on “Hinduism and the Future” at the Jaipoor airport later this year, it said, citing the Ministry of External Affairs.
India, which has about 4 million people, is one of the largest Hindu countries in the world, according to a World Bank study.
