Description:
The Hindu Temples category is a place to record the locations of all Hindu Temples around the world.
Expanded Description:

A Hindu temple is known by other names. Temples may be called "Mandir" or "Kovil" or "Devasthanam" or "Dega" (Nepal Bhasa) or "Ambalam" (Malayalam) or other words in different Indian languages.


A feature of most temples is a statue or representation of "murtis," the Hindu deity to whom the temple is dedicated. Temples are usually dedicated to one primary deity, called the presiding deity, and other subordinate deities associated with the main deity. However, some temples are dedicated to several deities, and some have symbols instead of a murti.


Please respect proper etiquette when visiting a Hindu temple. When in the temple, it is customary to fold one's hands as a sign of respect. Shoes must be removed upon entering the temple. In general,as with most religious sites, short skirts or revealing garments are not appropriate attire.
Instructions for Posting a Hindu Temples Waymark:
Record the coordinates using your own GPS device and post a representative photo of the exterior of the temple along with a photo of a sign indicating that the location is a Hindu temple. If no sign is available, this requirement may be waived.
Determine if the temple is open to visitors and indicate by responding to the variable.


Please include the locality (city, town, village, settlement, etc.) in the waymark name for example "Hindu Temple - Anytown, SomeCountry."




Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
Include in your log one or two complete sentences. Logs containing a few words like "visited it" are subject to deletion. Photos of the Hindu temple are strongly encouraged when permitted otherwise please refrain from taking pictures inside and in any case, generally have respect for the religious nature of the site.
