Not Many People Realize This Incredible Palace Is Hiding In Virginia
Unless you’ve visited the Light Of Truth Universal Shrine, you may not realize that Virginia is home to one of the most beautiful international religious sites in the country. This special palace was built in the 1980s as a tribute to its founder, H. H. Sri Swami Satchidananda.
Upon arriving in Yogaville, Virginia, the unsuspecting visitor might believe he or she has arrived in a foreign land. The pastel-colored temple’s exterior beauty is rivaled only by the surrounding landscape of the Shenandoah Valley. So whether you’re looking for a place of deep spirituality or are simply looking for a pristine example of Virginia’s diverse architecture, LOTUS belongs at the top of your to-visit list.
