I took some Hindu friends here as they were visiting from India. Although I'm a Christian I just loved this temple. Words cannot really describe the soft light and peaceful atmosphere you experience as you sit upstairs in the temple. Soft light floods in even on a cloudy day... heavenly !! The amazing marble and limestone are magnificent. I had gone by this temple hundreds of times on the 427 and so glad we finally made the time to visit. Parking was free and no charge to enter. (You don't need to go through the museum - there is no pressure to do so.) Highly recommended !
Beautiful temple with marble hand carvings of Indian Historic Architecture. The detailed work on the white marble of gods & goddesses gives this spiritual sanctuary its unique presence. This beauty is only to be experienced and seen since pictures are not allowed inside.
Such a beautiful place to visit. It’s a must to see. A very friendly volunteer greeted us at the door and explained every single detail about the temple and gave us an overview about their religious. They accommodate people who don’t know their tradition and provide scarfs to make you visit their space under their principles. They show respect and attention specially to kids and elderly people.
Interesting to see such a monument in Toronto! Very different and refreshing. Beautiful place to visit on a weekend and there are nice people there to guide you and explain the building, symbols and the way of Hinduism...
