ヒンズー教の寺院が有ると友人が教えてくれて立ち寄ってみる事にしました。アメリカのヒンズー教徒の方たちの聖地となっているそうで、この日は多くの信者さんと思われる人を見ました。神聖な空気が流れていました。 more »I dropped a friend told me there are Hindu temples. I have seen who seems to many believers, on this day, it has become a sacred place of Hindus in the United States. Holy air was flowing.
actual, active temple--nice place to visit in the hills of Malibu--welcoming to all--worth a stop while in the area more »
Very nice temple in and around the LA region. From studio city/Universal Studios you have a direct buses to this places, if you are a tourist. Very calm and peaceful place. You also have a nice cafeteria that serves good food for the tourists.
True or false: There is a difference between wealthy Hindis that give to poor Hindis out of the generosity of their hearts and wealthy Hindis that give to poor Hindis because they were shamed into doing so.
I had visited this temple during the navaratri weekend. The temple was beautiful and the sevas performed invoked a sense of serenity . But sad to say cleanliness was missing. I had reached the temple by 11AM in the morning after a 2 hour drive . Could not use the restroom due to the unbearable stench and extremely dirty toilets .Hope the administration makes this their top priority as Cleanliness is next to Godliness and majority of the visitors spend considerable time to drive to this people and many of them senior citizens .
It's OK, architecturally correct small temple, the grounds are not very manicured and there's trash around. Curiosity in Malibu.
First time visited Malibu temple it was amazing. The temple is clean and neatly kept. Felt very calm. Temple is surrounded by green mountains. It was not crowded at all. Had a wonderful experience. Please visit this temple when you get a chance. You will not regret it.
