Interesting place to visit. I didn't even know their was a Hindu Temple in Livermore until recently. Architecturally, the Livermore Shiva-Vishnu Temple is an interesting place to visit.

The poojas conducted at the temple are exhaustive, soul stirring and traditional. A visit to the temple can invigorate the devotee to lead a dharmic life. .

There are many small temples within of Lord Shiva, Lord Vishnu, Ganesha, Durga, Navagraha and many more. The temple people are very friendly and all are welcome. Plenty... More

We asked to go inside and were instructed to leave our shoes in a special room in the administrative building. We were told people could wear socks if they wished. Photos are not allowed inside, but if... More
