In early July 1980, the committee found a house at 9033 Georgia Avenue in Silver Spring, Maryland. This new location was not far from the previous temple, easy to commute, and had a nice landscape. The house selling price was US$260,000.00 but the Association was able to negotiate it down to US$240,000.00. The move was completed on December 7, 1980.
During the five-year period it became apparent that the Georgia Avenue location would not be adequate to meet the rapidly growing needs of its members. The committee therefore decided to make another move to the house at 13440 Layhill Road, Silver Spring, Maryland. This site has nice surrounding with 5 acres of land. The purchase price was US$265,000. Later on a room for the Principal Buddha image was added to the existing structure.
