BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, Houston is a mandir, or Hindu temple, in Stafford, Texas in the United States. It was the first traditional mandir of stone and marble to be constructed in the United States.
The 25,620 sq ft (2,380 m2) mandir is constructed entirely of marble from Italy and limestone from Turkey. There is no iron or steel anywhere in the structure. The stone that makes up the temple was shipped to India where it was hand-carved with traditional Vedic deities and motifs. Approximately 33,000 individually marked pieces were then shipped to Houston and assembled like a giant three-dimensional jigsaw.
The mandir was created by BAPS, an international Hindu organisation belonging to the Swaminarayan sect of Hinduism.
