The Hindu families residing in Staten Island organized together under the banner of Staten Island Hindu Temple for the purpose of building a temple in the Island for the first time in 1997. The temple was registered by the State of New York as of December 22, 1997 as a not-for-profit organization to foster Hindu religious traditions and ideals in the community. The bylaws of the temple were adopted at a meeting of the Board of Directors held on January 28, 1998. Devotees started assembling on Friday evening every week for prayer in a rented hall.

The temple purchased an old residential house at 1318 Victory Blvd., Staten Island, New York 10301 in June 2001. Congregation of devotees on Friday evenings continued at the United Dongan Hill/ South Avenue Community hall uninterruptedly. The house at Victory Boulevard was demolished and a new building was constructed. Bhumi puja for this new building was held on March 26, 2004. It took two years to complete the construction and receive the Certificate of Occupancy. The inaugural Puja for the new building was performed on March 25, 2006.
