Hidden Gem in Houston: BAPS

If you're wondering how to find peace on a Saturday morning in Houston, do yourself a favor and take a trip to BAPS: a traditional Hindu temple in Southwest Houston, near Stafford. The building is made of hand-carved Italian marble and limestone. 

Pictures can't do this place justice, and they actually do not allow for photos inside of the temple. 

If it's your first time visiting BAPS, it's good to know you must wear clothing that covers knees (no skits for the ladies), and you have to take off your shoes before entering the temple, so you might want to wear socks. They have a shoe room next to the temple where you and your boo can separate to store your shoes before entering the temple. 

Before leaving, check out the gift shop. There are many books about Hinduism for less than a couple dollars, and also lots of food to eat or take home to make.
