The Houston area is known for its diversity. But did you know the largest Hindu Temple in the U.S. , known as a Mandir, is located right here in Stafford? The Mandir opened in July, 2004 and was constructed from more than 30,000 carved pieces that were shipped from India and assembled here. The complex also has a shop, called a Shayona, which sells home-made Indian food that you can take home. On Sundays, worshipers gather in the Shayona to share a traditional Indian meal. Houston society writer Ruchi Mukherjee takes us to the Mandir and Shayona to show us some of the Indian cuisine you can get there.
