Everyone was very welcoming and respectful towards your reasoning for being there. We were just looking at the amazing architecture when Nitesh Patel(or Patol?) approached us and offered to tell us more about the temple, Hinduism, and anything else. Great experience.

Beautiful Architecture, in a rather odd location, but remarkable none the less. Definitely a hidden gem in the City of Toronto. There is also a Museum on site that highlights Indian culture and heritage.
