A Humble Beginning.
Every Organization, Business or Corporate entity has humble beginnings. Shri Ram Mandir was no exception. Pt. Roopnauth Sharma, having displayed remarkable leadership qualities in his community, coupled with his simple interpretation and presentation of Religion, was approached by various members of the Hindu Community to establish a Temple under his leadership. The establishment of Shri Ram Mandir was a dream fulfilled for Hindus in the City of Mississauga, since, an organization that focuses on development of youths and promoting Hinduism as it relates to the current century was long anticipated. For many years, the Temple operated in a Unit complex on Timberlea Blvd in Mississauga. In the year July 2001 the current structure was built.
