The property of the Hindu Temple of Georgia was sold to the highest bidder Tuesday at a public foreclosure auction in Gwinnett County.

It was unclear who bought the nine-acre property at 5900 Brook Hollow Parkway in Norcross following the temple's default on a $2.3 million bank loan. A Gwinnett County court clerk said it typically takes about 30 days for a deed to be recorded after a foreclosure sale occurs.

An attorney for the creditor, Anderson Lakes Properties, did not return several calls Tuesday afternoon.

Lloyd Whitaker, a trustee appointed by a federal bankruptcy judge, said Anderson Lakes had intended to bid on the parcel.
