This Beautiful Temple In New Jersey Is The Only One Of Its Kind In America

One of New Jersey’s greatest strengths is its cultural diversity. We’re truly a melting pot and so fortunate to be surrounded by a wide variety of beliefs, races and religions. One of my favorite perks is being able to enjoy authentic cuisine from around the world, but there are other benefits. The opportunity to learn is precious and, lucky for us, plentiful in the Garden State. This stunning temple is the perfect place to learn about Hindu culture.

The temple is located at 112 North Main Street, Robbinsville. Mandir hours are 9 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. daily. To learn more, visit BAPS.org. To explore the site, enjoy the video below. Around 7 minutes long, the footage features an up close look at art and architectural details – it is undeniably mesmerizing.

The fact that this beautiful building is in my backyard blows my mind. Of course, it’s not the only gorgeous place in the Garden State. For another beautiful building with religious and cultural significance, check out my article on the Princeton University Chapel.
