The BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir of Houston, Texas is a traditional Hindu temple built by the BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha which is a denomination of the Swaminarayan branch of Hinduism. The architecture of the temple is breath taking and exquisite. It is hard to believe such an beautiful and unique place exists in Houston. This is a great opportunity to test out your architecture photography skills. A polarizer filter can be extremely helpful to reduce glare from the bright white temple and make your skies pop. Please do no bring a tripod with you so as to not disrupt the daily religious activities taking place at the temple.

  1. Please read the visitor guidelines. We will have to take our shoes off if you go within the bounds of the temple. You can keep your shoes on outside of the temple.

    There is also a Buddhist temple in the area. If we have enough time we can visit there as well

  2. Please view the link below for visitor guidelines for visiting the BAPS Mandir Temple


    No tripods allowed, certain areas of the temple may not be photographed, and there is a dress code!

      Hi Lana, it says in the guidelines that no photography is allowed inside the temple or the premises. Do we have special permission to photograph certain areas?

      1. There is no professional photography allowed. So you cannot have a portrait session there. But it does say on the website that you are allowed to take photographs.

  3. Hi Lana,

    I just check the tickets and they are sold out. If you have one more spot available, please let me know. I would like to go.


    1. Absolutely! I will let you know if anyone cancels their attendance

      1. Thank you!!
