Hindu temples in Hungary

Since Hungarian people are mainly Christian, Hindu temples are not easy to find. Yet I’m interested to learn about other cultures, so I always keep looking. Hinduism originates from India and it is the oldest religion on Earth. It includes practices like meditation, recitations and annual festivals. Hindu believers have to live their lives with patience, honesty, self-restraint and must avoid hurting living beings. Their religious books are Bhagavad Gita and the Vedas.

Neohinduism, also called as Krishna Faith has a community in Somogyvámos. Interesting thing is that they use solar cells instead of electricity, get water from their fountains and provide food for themselves which makes them the biggest eco community in Hungary. They are vegetarians and have their own school for their children (when I was there a couple of years ago, there were 7 students of the school). They maintain themselves from the tickets of visitors, the books and other things you can buy at the shop.
