Description :

Sri Saumyakasi Sivalaya : Sri Saumyakasi Sivalaya is the first free standing Siva temple of its kind in Houston . The new 4,000-square feet house of worship was inaugurated on December 18, 2007 and is an integral part of the Chinmaya Prabha facility in Sugar Land, Texas.

Swami Chinmayananda, while inaugurating Chinmaya Prabha in Houston in the early 1980s, had envisioned the idea of a Siva temple on the premises. The addition of this landmark marks an important milestone towards fulfilling the grand vision of Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda. The temple construction was initiated on the Mahasivaratri day of February 26, 2006 when over a thousand people participated in the brick laying ceremony.
