People believe that Hindu temples are only for worship but there are many hidden sciences behind the temples.

“It is not that you do not get what you pray for; you get everything, but it is low, vulgar, a beggar’s religion. These prayers for health and wealth and material prosperity are not Bhakti (devotion). They are the lowest form of Karma. Bhakti is a higher thing.” – Swami Vivekananda


If you observe closely the famous temples are the ones which are the oldest and has been visited by the gods themselves and great sages. 


The reason is that once the temple is filled by their positivity they emit back the positive vibrations for ages to come which helps people who visit the temple 


Our ancestors always say that our body is a temple and the God is within ourself. If we keep our body and mind clean then god will come in and reside in us. Now you can clearly see that the Hindu temples represent human body in the above image. This is what our ancestors were trying to convey it to us but we missed to understand it.


The main place where the idol is placed in the temple is compared to our brain, both are compared very sacred where negative or unclean things are forbidden entry. 


If we understand that our body is a temple and god is within ourselves then we will start keep it clean. Which will improve our life and health.

In old days people will not construct their homes taller than the temple tower because during storms thunders will be attracted by the towers. This will save homes and people in the city.


Kings used to build many temples to protect women, children and cows during wars with other countries.  


Apart from this kings used to save grains in vessels on top of the temple towers to protect the seeds in case of floods to provide for agriculture. The seeds will be replaced at regular intervals. 


Wealth of the kingdoms were also stored in temples under the main idol of God. During famine the king used to take the wealth and use it to improve the kingdom. If the kingdom was wealthly then they store excess money under the main idol. 


This process of replacing the grains and wealth in the temple is  called “Kumbhabhishekham”.  This is followed for every 12 years in all Hindu temples.  Now a days people see this as a ritual but we forgot why we started this.
