Not Many People Realize This Incredible Palace Is Hiding In Texas
Is the Taj Mahal on your bucket list of places to visit in your lifetime? If so, today is your lucky day because you can visit the closest thing to it without even leaving Texas. The BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Stafford (just outside of Houston) is a breathtaking Hindu temple that looks as if it belongs in India. It’s open to the public daily and is a wonderful way to immerse yourself in a new culture and become more worldly – not to mention the fact that it’s absolutely awe-inspiring to look at.
