Dear Devotees,

We are very happy to let you know that we have successfully procured the land at San Martin. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your generous donations and pledge to support the build out of VVGC San Martin Temple. We would like to thank all our volunteers who have spent countless hours to help us get to where we are. We couldn't have achieved this without your help and support.

We will be working in the coming months to build a new structure and start hosting religious and community events at the San Martin location. Here are the links to updated engineering plan and drawings:

As we build and establish the San Martin location, we will continue to host the regular and special events at our San Jose location as well.

Thank you for your patronage. Please reach out to us by email or phone, if you have any questions.
