Consecration of Shiva Temple in North Carolina
North Carolina: The consecration ceremony of the Sri Somesvara Temple, located in the mountains of Western North Carolina is scheduled on May 12 to May 16. The temple is said to be a masterpiece, honoring the deepest values of Vedic architecture.

Two "sthapatis" from the lineage of famous architect V. Ganapati Sthapathi, and seven "shilpis" from Tamil Nadu, have taken 50 tons of hand carved granite from South India to create the Sri Somesvara Temple.

The five-day event will be the inauguration of a purely Vedic Shiva Temple, said the organizers.
