The Hindu Temple and Community Center of Michiana provides a place where the Hindu Community of South Bend can gather and worship. We were able to attend and participate in a devotional ritual. Above is the entrance to the Temple.

There are ten shrines inside the Temple; inside each shrine are one, two, or three statues of different Hindu gods. They are encased in what look like mini white temples; each has two steps leading up to the statue(s).
