No two temples are alike. Temples are the places where art and devotion meet, where the human mind
finds peace and solace, in the adobe of the almighty, and the almighty manifests,
for devotees in one of many forms.
Every temple has a tale to tell! And history to share. From Somnath in Gujarat
to Angkor Wat Cambodia in Cambodia, from Kanya Kumari, where three oceans meet, to
Amarnath, where a temple for Lord Shiva stands in the mighty Himalayas.
We present here, the rich history of temples from around the world. It is a cyber journey
that will take you through the interesting tails about construction of the temple
and the brutal destruction of some of the most fabulous temples in the history.
While Hindus in the west, and in the east continue to build the temples,
an insight into what has happened to thousands of temples in the past
is worth a look
We hope that the Hindus, for generations to come, look at the history of temples
as a reflection to their culture and dharma. The goal is not the politicization
of temples and the history, rather, it is to learn from the history. After all,
those who do not learn from history are condemed to relive it.

non-Hindu places of worship destroyed by the terrorists
