BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir

This wonderful Mandir is just a few miles from my home.
These are the nicest, friendliest folk you could ever meet. But... cameras are not allowed inside the Mandir (Main building).
My photos from outside the Mandir are not for sale.
For more information, please refer to their website for visitor information, as there are rules about dress, etc.

About the Mandir ~ The BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Houston is the first traditional Hindu Mandir of stone and marble to be constructed in the United States.
Created entirely according to ancient Hindu architectural manuscripts known as the Shilpa-Shastras and meeting all the modern regulations of today,
it was constructed in a mere 16 months starting from the day its first stone was laid.
Limestone from Turkey and marble from Italy was shipped to India where it was hand-carved.
More than 33,000 carved pieces were shipped from India to Houston to build such a beautiful Mandir.
There is no iron or steel in this structure.

Many thanks to Hinduismtoday.com for additional information regarding this Mandir and the Hindu religion.
