Wonderful work of Art, Architecture and Engineering all combined. Canada's first traditionally hand-carved Hindu place of worship. Visitors are welcome as long as you follow their rules. Proper clothing, you have to remove your shoes if you go inside.

Amazing detailed temple inside and out. It was amazing to see but at the same time, smaller than i thought it would be. Definitely recommend! They provide a cloth to cover your legs if you are wearing shorts or a short skirt.

I have never seen such a beautiful handcrafted building before! All the marble pieces are made separately and delivered to Canada from India by ship. Each piece is unique. It's like a lace!

Etobicoke is a relaxed area along the Humber River.
It's saturated with green spaces and conservatories,
making it a premier destination for outdoor sports,
hiking, and nature walks. Its abundance of parkland
and lakes makes it a typical spot for fishing,
picnicking, and camping out, especially in warmer
months. The peaceful area is also enjoyed by families,
who appreciate its boardwalks and sports facilities.
