The hillside below Crystal Hermitage looks like a huge excavation for dinosaur bones! Utilizing many pieces of heavy equipment and expert manpower, we have removed the old wood retaining walls, dug the footings for the new retaining walls, dug the footings for the new foundation of the Mandir and we have begun to place the retaining wall blocks. The retaining walls are like big lego blocks and they will continue to be installed till the middle of July. We have begun the building foundation work and will have the Mandir foundation and floor slabs in place by the first weeks of July. Onward and upward! Jai Guru!
