We all know that India is a religious country and Indians have a huge belief in god. The number of Hindu temples in India is a puzzle. Nobody bothered to count them, because they are innumerable. Moreover, Hindus are not that keen to record such immaterial things.

A Tamil proverb says don't live in a town where there is no temple.
A Sanskrit proverb says seeing a temple tower gives you a 10 million good things.

There are various things that the temple teaches us in life such as-

•Temples teach you good things are never destroyed by looking at how many years they have been standing in spite of thousands of foreign invasions.

•Temples teach your community spirit. They teach us to think together, work together and execute together.

•Temples keep you fit mentally and physically. Temples are huge, when you walk through the corridors, you do big exercise. The festivals in temples lift your spirit.

•Temples are powerhouses. They motivate us, they give us the power to stand still when life is stuck with lots of problems.

•Temples help you to focus attention.

Surely everyone has their own beliefs and we can’t criticize anyone’s beliefs. But these are some of the views of the people I have received.But there are around 3.01 million that are places of worship, more than the number of schools and colleges ( 2.1 million).

We are an ancient nation and our monuments and architectural wonders antiquities. Let’s preserve it, not for religious reasons or for a political edge but to be able to share it with our coming generations so that they can marvel at the magnificence of these edifices just like we are able to.
