We have it now! Our dream Hindu Cultural Precinct on the shores of Gold Coast

There are just a lot of reasons to celebrate. The community had a dream of building a Hindu Educational and Cultural precinct in the midst of the buzzing Gold Coast. The community is one step closer to fulfilling this dream. We have received confirmation of the Gold Coast City Council land in Arundel, Gold Coast for this project.

This is yet another achievement for the Gold Coast Hindu Cultural Association. We are headed in the right direction and it’s inspiring, all our successes must be celebrated and form as stepping-stones. This is a critical milestone for the GCHCA and the wider Hindu community in Australia. The Gold Coast community is very excited.

WE NEED YOU NOW, to walk the last mile with us holding hands, praying, singing and dancing. You have donated over $455k in the last 10 months and we need much more to build your dream. Please join us, become a Life Member – be part of this piece of history.

This is a critical milestone for the GCHCA and the wider Hindu community in Australia. The Gold Coast community is very excited.
