Modi expressed gratitude to the UAE leadership on behalf of 125 crore Indians, appreciating their decision to construct the temple, which he hailed as a “landmark” move, as reported by various sources.

Ambassador Sudhir highlighted the remarkable dedication and contributions of thousands of Indian artisans and devotees throughout the temple’s construction. He emphasized the active involvement of devotees and members of the Indian diaspora who participated in the construction through “Shramdan,” or voluntary labor. The completion of the temple is celebrated as a collective achievement, showcasing the unity and affection invested by the community.
