Retirement Community Focuses on Hindu Immigrants
With 54 condos and a common clubhouse for dining and recreation, ShantiNiketan is a snug haven for seniors of Indian origin. Everything at the complex is Indian, starting with the food offered to the Hindu gods displayed in the prayer room.
“ShantiNiketan is the first retirement housing plan targeting a specific immigrant group in the country,” said Iggy Ignatius, founder of the community. “Orlando was the obvious choice because of its tropical climate and proximity to tourist attractions like Disney World, giving children and grandchildren incentive to visit their parents in ShantiNiketan.”
