BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir (Temple) in Stafford, TX
This past Saturday (June 8, 2019) we had the pleasure to take an Asian Heritage Tour with a focus on Indian culture. We visited the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir (Temple) in Stafford, TX (suburb of Houston) and we were educated in Hindu history plus participated in an Arti: The Hindu Ceremony of Light. This was followed by a visit to the Anjali Center for the Performing Arts where we learned about Indian dance forms (styles) and then enjoyed several dance demonstrations performed by an amazing young lady.

We then proceeded to an Indian buffet meal at Mezban Indian Buffet on Harwin (the Tandoori chicked was my favorite). After lunch we went to Parivar Grocers and picked up some Indian Curry and Indian Red Chili to be used in future meals at home. Lastly, we briefly popped into the Roop Sari Palace where they sell elegant and beautiful Saris.

As members of the #HoustonInsider group, we strongly recommend the Asian Heritage Tours as a part of a unique and diverse Houston experience. Not a Houston Insider yet? Go to visithouston.com/insider to join.
