It is a structure designed to bring human beings and gods together through worship, sacrifi ce and devotion. A temple incorporates all elements of the Hindu cosmos — presenting the good, the evil and the human, as well as the elements of the Hindu sense of cyclic time and the essence of life. For almost 45 years the Bharatiya Temple of Metropolitan Detroit, in Troy, has been the center for Hindu culture and worship in Michigan. Experience an informative and inspirational guided tour of this magnificent sanctuary. Visitors will meet in the temple’s rotunda and, as is custom, remove their footwear before entering the sacred area where deities are worshipped. Do not miss this opportunity to learn more about the Hindu community and its culture, and one of the oldest religions in the world.
