4. We will welcome sponsorships for Sri Raman Navami, however no devotees will be able to attend in person. Please stay home and help reduce the spread of the virus.
5. During this period of Mar 19th to Apr 12th 2020 we will be strictly enforcing the local authorities guidelines, which currently states that we can only have less than 10 people gather at the Temple
The Executive Committee will continue to monitor the developments and will adjust the operating parameters as required. Should you have any questions, please reach out to president@myhtw.net or call 281-309-8751.

The Hindu Temple of the Woodlands

Established in 2005 with land purchased in the same year, Hindu Temple of The Woodlands is home to Ganesha, Shiva, Balaji, MahaLakshmi and Radha Krishna. It is located at South Forestgate and Woodlands Parkway. Because of its location in The Woodlands in a wooded area adjacent to Forestgate Park, one of The Woodland’s one hundred parks, it is one of the most beautiful temple sites in the area.
Future developments for the temple are yagna facilities, classroom and library space, a large lobby and a kitchen. HTW has an active educational program and has celebrated a number of festivals. Community service is also a part of the temple’s mission.
