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.
