The first building constructed specifically as a Hindu temple on Long Island is set to open this weekend in Melville, culminating a decades-long effort and giving the Indian community a centrally located religious home for the faithful in Nassau and Suffolk counties.

The 49,000-square-foot temple, constructed by the BAPS organization on a five-acre plot on Deshon Drive, will be dedicated Sunday.
