About the Temple

Philosophically the Hindu Temple is not merely a place of worship or a place of community gathering. Rather, we may call it as an abode of the supreme authority of the universe. In other words the temple is a house of God. According to the ancient Indian Literature and Shilpa texts the Hindu temple is considered to be the human body of God. Thus the various parts of a temple have been termed as pada, jangha, sikhara, mastaka, etc.

The following table provides a list of the temples protected by the Government.
