Islamic Life Center celebrates groundbreaking in Carmel


The Al Salam Foundation held a groundbreaking ceremony Oct. 29 to celebrate the beginning of construction of the Islamic Life Center, which is set to be complete by the fall of 2024. The mosque will be built on 15 acres at 14120 Shelborne Rd. in northwest Carmel. It will provide more space for the foundation – which currently meets in northwest Indianapolis – to host religious, educational and cultural activities.
