The golden Indian domes have been replaced by a red tile roof, and the ornate Hindu carvings at the entrance have been scrapped in favor of curved archways. But to Natoo Patel, the latest sketches of his congregation's new place of worship in Norwalk are beautiful--even if the building will end up looking more like a Spanish mission than a Hindu temple.

Don't expect to see gladiators and stamping hooves at Sunday's Festival of Chariots. The "chariots" are actually 10-story-high floats pulled by people--not racing ponies--in a festive procession down Ocean Front Walk from Santa Monica to Venice. The 23rd annual event is an Americanized version of a celebration held for 2,000 years in a temple in the city of Orissa, India.

With prayer and dance, food from India and food for thought, about 100 people took part in a celebration of Mahatma Gandhi's birthday Sunday night at the Valley Hindu Temple in Northridge. Gandhi is celebrated as the leader of the nonviolent movement that ultimately freed India from British rule and paved the way for colonialism's eventual unraveling around the globe.

Hindus from throughout Southern California converged on Cerritos Regional Park on Saturday to ring in the Hindu New Year with Diwali, the ancient Festival of Lights. The festival, which in Hindu religious tradition commemorates the return of Lord Rama, the triumph of good over evil, drew Indians from throughout Southern California, many in colorful traditional attire. "I haven't seen Diwali since I was a kid in New Delhi," said a beaming Dolly Gupta.

A traditional Indian dance festival is expected to draw hundreds of Hindus to the Valley Hindu Temple over nine days. Navratri, or the Festival of Nine Nights, will begin Thursday and run through the following Friday. It is the second year the temple has staged the festival on such a large scale. "People come from Ventura County, Orange County. It's been growing," said Kenny Sharma, a temple trustee. "There's something to see every night."

To help mark the Hindu festival of Chaitra Navrati--nine days during which followers of the religion worldwide celebrate the arrival of spring--more than 800 of the faithful gathered at the Valley Hindu Temple on Sunday morning to light ritualistic fires. The fire purification ceremony--overseen by members of a sect who believe the smoke delivers prayers directly to the sun goddess, Mother Gayatri--took place under a large tent adjacent to the temple on Roscoe Boulevard.
