The HTCC effort was begun in the early 1980's to fulfill the need of the community for a place of worship, to celebrate festivals and other important occasions. The land purchase was completed in 1994 and the plans for Phase I were finalized by 1999. We applied in 2000 for a construction permit, which was approved in late 2001. 2002 was a momentous year for HTCC, not only because Phase I was constructed but also because of the tremendous support from the community. In Feb of 2003, we installed the deities in the Phase I building's worship room.
