The temple's architecture is nice, and the priests seem to do a nice job during the pooja. The behavior of those at the counter are unacceptable, and unwelcoming. They seem to care more about the money given by the guests than the providing a peaceful, holy place for worship. It's suppose to be religious and cultural setting, not a business... More

Sometimes my son and I stopped by, although we are not Hindus. You need to take off your shoes to get inside the temple, where there are many deities inside. The temple seems to be under renovation all the time. It look greats and the atmosphere is quiet. My son likes to light a small cup of oil. The canteen... More

Established nearly 40 years ago by expatriate Indians, the temple has been regularly expanded. Well-organized and kept very very clean. The place breathes sanctity and the temple offerings are received with respect and offered with devotion. A wonderful religious experience especially for Hindus, but also offers a place for non-Hindus to experience an aspect of the HIndu religion.

Nice temple. The canteen is really good. Some of the best south Indian fare you can find in the whole of NYC.

This is an awesome place for spiritual visit. The temple primarily attracts South Indian Hindus and offers all daily and seasonal poojas. Not to mention their canteen, one of the best place in New York to taste South Indian.

I visited this Temple with my wife. It's far out in the queens but worth the trip. Food in the basement canteen is good too!

I went there for lunch with some other American friends. This way we got to taste different dishes. It is a "canteen" in the basement of the Ganesha Temple. We were the only non Indian people there, so we asked some of them on line with us what to order. Everyone was so helpful and friendly. I had Dosa Macella... More

But the Journey will... More

I have been there on occasion of "Akshayya Trutiya" with my wife. Temple is well maintained. You will find Maha Ganapati at the center and all other hindu God/Goddess surrounding Lord Ganesha. Felt really nice to be in temple almost more than month after landing in NY. It's not a tourist must see attraction but for those who want to... More
