Throughout history, Mandirs have strengthened the very fabric of life in all facets. In fact, they form the very foundation of Hindu Dharma. Helping maintain culture through art and architecture, Mandirs also help society by strengthening bonds within families as well as the community. Most importantly, though, Mandirs help fulfill the most basic spiritual needs of man.
Traditionally, sacred Hindu holy ceremonies help to continually remind us of the significance and glory of Mandirs. Patotsav ceremonies (celebrations on the anniversary of Mandir inauguration) rekindle the flames of faith and help reassure us that God is always present to listen to our prayers and to soothe our worries.
