Churches in Europe and USA become Hindu temples
Globally, Christianity is losing followers by the thousands and the reluctance of youths to become Christian priests and the falling number of parishioners is forcing several churches to shut down. Many of these churches are being bought by prosperous Hindus who are keen that their children do not lose touch with their Hindu spiritual roots.
An 80-year-old church was acquired for $1.3 million by Swaminarayan Maninagar Gaadi Sansthan (SMGS) in Dallas, US, last year.
SMGS has acquired five such old churches in Canada, the US and the UK. A fortnight ago, the sect acquired a 121-year-old heritage church building in Toronto, Canada for $1.6 million. While the building is now being converted into a temple-ashram, SMGS plans to retain carvings and glass paintings which are of great heritage value.
The SMGS has 12 temples abroad. Most of the churches acquired are situated in prime areas and in a run-down condition.
