I found this temple in the middle of the desert.

It is called the Maha Ganapati Temple of Arizona.

I was heading back home from visiting family so I decided to stop real quick and take some pictures. It was a quiet Sunday morning and worshippers started to arrive while I was taken shots of the temple.

A gentleman who was attending services informed me that the temple construction started with phase one in 2008 and continuing phases of shrines being built over the years.
