Bask in splendor of aesthetic Delhi temples

India’s spirituality and mystical charm has always drawn people from all over the world. As the world has become increasingly capitalistic and materialistic, the quest and urgency for spirituality has grown more and more.

Spread over almost each and every part of India, Indian temples reflect the faith and devotion of Hindu religious followers. According to Hindu philosophy, a temple is a sacred place, an abode of lasting peace where finite man connects with the infinite god. The Vastu Shastras (religious manuscripts) describe temple as a symbolic, miniature representation of the cosmos.
