About the Temple

On October 18, 2009, the Hindu Temple of Charleston opened its doors.

A group of committed Indian diaspora members worked tirelessly to provide a permanent house of worship for the Lowcountry Hindu community.

In 2012, a big structure in Charleston was bought to serve as a Hindu Temple.

Objectives of the Temple

  • Follow the traditions, ethics and moral standards of places of worship. Provide facilities for religious, spiritual and cultural activities to understand and expand the knowledge of Indian philosophy and scriptures.
  • Strengthen and promote the moral, physical and cultural well-being of the community and the friendship between all people through spiritual and cultural understanding based on truth, love, justice and harmony.
  • Sunday school, summer camps, seminars, and other events aimed at improving the spiritual, cultural, and moral knowledge of community members, particularly those of the younger generation.
Basics of Sanatana Dharma

Sanatan Dharma means eternal religion.

The Hindu faith, also known as Sanatan Dharma, is distinctive in numerous ways. The Hindu faith is not founded on the life, teachings, or spiritual experiences of a single person. Rather, it is founded on universal, everlasting principles and goals that have stood the test of time.

Sanatan Dharma adherents believe in the freedom to practice one's own religion and are ardent supporters of the idea "the goal is one, but the paths are numerous." It is a whole and complete view of life and is a way of life.
