Ganesha Temple



Ganesha Temple located in Flushing, Queens is run by the Hindu Temple Society of North America. It is one of the most renowned and biggest Hindu temples in America and has a member count of around 20,000. Apart from the daily services offered, an active community centre is also run by the temple authorities which conduct formal classes, lectures and programmes, focusing on the practice of religion, philosophy, culture, arts and music.

4: Sorry to say
You have not done full research for this article,
It is amazing that you have not included any of the BAPS Swaminarayan Temples from USA.
There are three Hindu temples which are bigger then the five you have mentioned.
1. BAPS Swaminarayan Temple in Chicago.
2. BAPS Swaminarayan Temple in Houston.
3. BAPS Swaminarayan Temple in Atlanta.
Please do some research on the above mentioned temples, and update your article.
Thanks
