I visited one of the most beautiful Hindu temples I have ever seen. It is known as the BAPS Mandir. I was allowed to take pictures of the outside of the temple, but not on the inside. The wood for the temple was carved and shipped from India as was the stone. The inside of the temple was illuminated with changing soft lights and the carved marble had the stories of the past. Here are some of the pictures from the outside.
