Lakshmi Narayan Mandir of North Houston, also known as "Northside Mandir" is a Hindu Temple in Houston.

History[edit]

Indo-Caribbeans immigrants from Trinidad and Tobago and Guyana created the Lakshmi Narayan Mandir of North Houston, an organization for Hindus from the Caribbean. In 2007, the Mandir bought land in Willowbrook, Houston and soon construction began. By June 2010, the temple was finished and a Prana Pratishtha ceremony was held on June 2010.[1] In 2010, the temple celebrated its 1st Diwali with over 250 attendees, with many coming from the Caribbean but also Fiji, India and South Africa.[2] The Green Kumbh visited the temple in 2014 during their Diwali celebration. Northside Mandir installed a rainwater harvesting system in 2015, making it the first Hindu Temple in North America to have such a system. On Earth Day in 2014, members of the Northside Mandir planted several trees on the Campus.[3]

Facilities[edit]

Northside Mandir has a Prayer Hall, a Cafeteria, A Dining Area, A stage, and a Yoga Area. The Mandir also holds Satsangs at homes free of charge[4]
