      It will feel like you've been transported to India when you stop by to visit this Hindu Mandir (temple) and visitors center. Although the buildings were constructed just a few years ago, the architecture looks like it belongs to an era long past, with absolutely dazzling details. Beneath the temple is an informative little museum, where you can learn about the history and practice of Hinduism, and the local Hindu community. This community is quite welcome to visitors, and does not try to proselytize.

      If you go:
      The Visitors Center is open daily, 9 to 7. The temple and museum are open daily during the same hours, except closed between noon and 4 on weekdays. No photography allowed inside buildings, and you must remove shoes before entering the temple. There is no cost, but donations are welcome, and you will see many receptacles for them.
