Impressive architecture, first time for me in a Mandir. Amazing wood and stone carving work. Unfortunately no pictures are allowed in the inside, exteriors are OK. Large parking lot, free admission. Don't miss it while in the area.

Beautiful building. People were so welcoming. The only downside was that people were talking in the quiet area (shhh!).

From freeway 71, the temple really looks massive. Ample parking is available. Shoes have to be remove before entering. Intricate marble carvings are installed .Construction Costs was not a problem. Accessible also to PWD. It is a man made building that could be appreciated.

This temple is a great place to visit. It's beautiful and grand. The members are extremely friendly from the gate and throughout the temple. I love the little gift shop. They have goods that are different in flavor, like the sandalwood incense, lemongrass tea and their mesmerizing jasmine air freshener. Their prices are pretty decent. There's a door that leads...

For the casual tourist, this complex is a surprising break from fast and furious los angeles. The visitor center is an elaborately carved wonder imported from India in pieces.
