I had the pleasure of visiting the temple two weeks ago. It is a beautiful temple, both inside and out, with fantastic hand carving. It is a must see if you are in the area.

This new temple recently inaugurated in Dec.2012 in Chino hills, is the best example of historic intricate carved artwork on marble seen only at Dilwara in Abu or in temples of Ranakpur in Rajasthan, India.
Frankly, I felt the artwork and carvings unparalleled even by Indian standards, although carved by present day artisans in India.
Another surprise was to note that the temple is quake proof, built of special layers of floating steel plates.
A modern temple with real historic intricate art, not to be missed, irrespective of ones faith.
