The design of Char Dham Hindu Temple in The Woodlands, Texas is modeled after the Char Dham temples (Char means four, and Dham means Temple) located at four corners of India today – Jagannath Dham at Puri in the East, Dwarakanath Dham at Dwarka in the West, Badrinath Dham at Badrinath in the North, and Rameswaram Dham at Rameswaram in the South.
Char Dhams are regarded as extremely sacred to all Hindus and pilgrimage to the Char Dhams at least once in a lifetime is a dream come true for Hindu devotees. It is further believed that Adi Shankaracharya purposefully established these four Dhams in four corners of India during the 8th century, in an attempt to revive the Hindu religion and unify all Hindus across the country.
As we embark upon the construction phase of the Char Dham Hindu Temple in The Woodlands, Texas, we would like to hold a special prayer ceremony and offer a limited number of bricks dedicated in the name of our devotees and their families to be built into the temples and be remembered through the life of the temple. Family must download the form and mail it to Char Dham Hindu Temple.
The Char Dham Hindu Temple in The Woodlands is a unique temple with all the four temples in one location, and the only one of its kind in the world.
