Abstract

Especially since the 1970s, Hindu immigrants in the United States have been planning and buiding Hindu temples in their new homeland. Often there has been resistance to temple construction proposed in residential areas. In those states following the more permissive New York majority position, the courts have been reluctant to allow zoning to restrict church land use. In those states where the more restrictive California minority position is followed, the courts allow zoning of church land use. In the latter group, Hindus often must surmount considerable obstacles before their temples can be built. According to AA., there are no accounts of Hindu groups defeated in their efforts to build. - (SLD)
