Sai Pariwar, Inc. & Sai Mandir in North Brunswick, New Jersey, a 22-year-old non-profit organization, are hosting a fundraising event featuring Bollywood songs and music on Sunday 8 May 2022, at the Balaji Temple Auditorium in Bridgewater, New Jersey, to raise funds for the construction of a new temple and cultural center.
The Sai Mandir has acquired land in the central New Jersey area of North Brunswick Township on Route 130 to build the Baba Temple and Cultural Center, according to an April 18, 2022 press release from the organization. .
The new site will house not only Sri Shirdi Saibaba but other Hindu deities, organizers say. Currently, temple management is working with the township and architects to get construction permits approved which will be completed in the near future, they said.
The current North Brunswick Temple is located in a warehouse area, in a very old property that poses logistical challenges for parking and limited access for special needs and disabled worshipers.
The new temple will be located in what organizers say is a safer location with ample parking and will meet basic needs and technology requirements.
Sai Pariwar’s goal is to raise $3 million to complete the construction of a new temple in the coming years. The Board and Committee of Sai Pariwar asks all devotees to contribute generously and reach out to their friends, families and other acquaintances for their generous support, so that they can begin to achieve the financial goals of building and other work for the new temple, the press release says.
