Long known as a popular place to live for Tongans and other Pacific Islanders, Euless is also a hot spot for Nepalese immigrants.

So much, in fact, that Euless Boulevard will soon be sprouting Hindu and Buddhist temples.

Four acres along Euless Boulevard will soon become a center of worship and culture for Nepalese immigrants and Nepalese-American families. The tract at 2219 W. Euless Blvd. will be the home of the Nepalese Cultural and Spiritual Center. Lush landscaping, the temples and a community center are included in the project, which organizers hope will convey a spirit of peace, friendship and charity.

"We are trying to preserve our culture," said Murali Adhikari of Euless, a volunteer with the center who is helping lead the project. "We are trying to teach the essence of our culture and religion."
