The proliferation of Indian restaurants, grocery stores and screening of Bollywood, Tamil and Telugu movies week after week is ample evidence of the growing Indian population in the Pittsburgh region.

Hindu Temples
Greater Pittsburgh region is also home to three Hindu temples and a Sikh Gurdwara which cater to the spiritual needs of the immigrants.

Of the three Hindu temples, Sri Venkateswara Temple modeled after the world famous Venkateswara temple in Tirupati in South India, is the anchor of the Indian community in the greater Pittsburgh area.

Located in the eastern suburb of Penn Hills, Sri Venkateswara Temple is one of the earliest Hindu temples to be built in the U.S. The main deity in the temple is Venkateswara, a representation of Lord Vishnu.

Asian Indians are also well represented at the local Carnegie Mellon University in the faculty as well as in the student community.
