Indian temple designed in Wales; wales newsbulletin.

BUILDERS behind the construction of a huge Hindu temple in India have found the man they want to oversee the job - in Wales.

Dr Adam Hardy, from Roath, Cardiff, has been picked to design the intricate 6,000 square metre temple in Karnataka, near Bangalore.

The Hoysala Art Foundation - the company directing the project - had put together a team of sculptors, but after searching high and low, didn't have an architect capable of designing the building. Dr Hardy has studied Indian temple architecture for more than 30 years, written two books on the subject and helped construct similar buildings in the UK.
