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.
