What are some special places of worship in Hinduism?



In Hinduism there are several special places for worship. Besides temples, everyone's house has a special room called a "puja room" in which pictures or deities of God are kept and worship is held daily. The worship in the home usually consists of offering various items to the picture or deity of God, such as incense, flowers, oil lamps, camphor lamps, fruits, food, water, etc.


Besides worship in the home, there are special historical places of worship, or pilgrimage places, throughout India. These locations are connected with the pastimes of God when he descends to earth to reestablish religion through His divine incarnations. In places where God has appeared on earth, temples are constructed and people travel there on pilgrimage to worship and remember the Lord.

Its true that there are special places of worship.But the main idea in going to temple should not to see god with your eyes but rather to feel god there. Because temple is a place where more people pray with utter devotion and its the devotion which u should feel at a temple.


God is there where there is devotion!!
