The idea of establishing a place of worship and a community center was conceived in 1990, and India Temple Association (ITA), a non-profit religious organization, was established to pursue this idea. The main objectives and goals of ITA are:
To provide a place of worship to Hindu community in South Jersey, Eastern Pennsylvania and Delaware.
To keep our children in touch with religion and culture.
To educate our children about our religious and cultural values.
To provice a place to our community which they can use at the time of their need to celebrate happy events and share sorrow at sad events.
To acquaint the community at large with our culture.
To create better understanding among community members with different back grounds in a multi-ethnic society.
The Association consists of two major administrative units i.e. THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES AND THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE. The Executive Committee, which is elected annually, has the responsibility for the day-to-day affairs of the Association, whereas policy decisions are made by The Board of Trustees.
 ITA is a non-profit charitable and educational organization. Its goals are: to promote social, cultural, and religious understanding based on peace, love, justice, truth, and harmony; to promote friendship and goodwill among all people; to perform social services such as providing free medical help to needy families, providing educational grants/loans to needy families, providing social services to the elderly and to conduct educational/guidance programs for children to teach them good family and social values. Donations to ITA, Inc are tax deductible.

India Temple Association was formed by five visionaries, Mr. Vankat Raman, Mr. Romesh Chopra, Mr. Mohanram, Dr. Desh Raj Goel and Dr. Kanwar Sain Satija  in 1976. Land was bought, plans were prepared and, as usual, community lacked funds to build new temple. Active members of another organization Shri Vallabhnidhi agreed to merge with ITA and on May 6, 1982, ITA purchased the church property and Hindu Mandir in Berlin became a reality, a place of worship for all Hindus in the Delaware Valley. Shri Narendra Amin was instrumental in providing paintings for temple beautification and along with Shri Mahesh Dixit, meticulous details for the ordering of idols from India were finalized. On May 31, 1985, the Idols of Radha-Krishna arrived at the mandir. However, because of damage in transit to Radhaji’s idol, the Pran-Pratishtha Mahotsava, of Lord Krishna was performed on September 20, 21 and 22, 1985. Over the past 25 years, the temple and its services have grown along with the community. Recently, the Organization celebrated its 25th Anniversary of Pran Pratishtha on September 10,11 and 12, 2010.
