There is a new Hindu house of prayer, an Indian-style mosque and a Hindu temple that is set to open its doors to the public on Saturday, as a sign of the end to a century-old tradition that has dominated the capital for centuries.
The new Hindu Temple in central Toronto, which is part of a larger initiative to bring together Hindus across the country, will be the first of its kind in Canada.
“This is an opportunity for the public to see the beauty of the city,” said Bhaskar Chaudhary, executive director of the Sikh-American Coalition of Greater Toronto.
The new temple is set for construction next month, in a renovated space in the old City Hall building, which was once home to the city’s Indian population. “
The temple is a symbol of our religion.”

The city is planning a massive renovation to the existing city hall, and plans to open a new museum next year, as well.
In 2017, Toronto’s population was nearly 30,000 people.
Many Hindu residents, who are traditionally the second-largest community in Canada, had feared that the new temple would become a divisive symbol of Hinduism in Toronto.
Some people have said they don’t believe in the religion at all, while others have said that Hindus should not be allowed to practice their religion in the city, which has a large Hindu population.
In the late 1990s, the city of Toronto’s Hindu community, known as the Vohra community, began to feel unwelcome in the community, and some residents and other members of the community had to flee their homes.
The Vohras say they are not Hindus, but members of their community have been forced to live in shacks, as many have left their communities for fear of violence.
Some say that their religious beliefs have been misinterpreted and they fear for their safety.
But some of the VOHRA, which lives in the basement of the old Toronto City Hall, are not going to give up.
The group has launched a petition calling on the city to “stop demonizing Hindus in Toronto.”
“We believe that this is a moment of peace,” said Vikramjit Singh, the president of the group.
“We have no choice but to fight this fight.”
The VOHRAs community is a diverse group that includes Sikhs, Christians, Buddhists, Muslims and Hindus.
It has a number of small temples, and a larger temple in Scarborough.
“For us, it’s just a symbolic gesture to show our love and respect for the city we love and cherish,” Singh said.
The Toronto Star reported that the city is expecting an estimated 10,000 to 15,000 Hindus to come to celebrate on Saturday.
Many of the participants will wear masks and have religious tattoos.
“I’m really excited,” said K.V. Srinivasan, a 23-year-old student who is attending the opening ceremony.
“There’s so much to celebrate.
It’s going to be very emotional for everyone.”
The opening of the new Hindu temple is part a broader project that is calling for a Hindu revival.
On Sunday, the Toronto Police Service will hold a vigil for victims of the recent riots in Toronto, and will also host a yoga retreat in the City Hall Garden.
