"Piling, shoring and casting of basements one and two are complete as of now. We are on track to open during Diwali 2022," said Shroff, as quoted by the Khaleej Times.
The temple's foundation was laid in February 2020. "Once complete, there will be several churches, the Sikh Guru Nanak Darbar, and a Hindu temple in the same location," Shroff added.
