Mount Soma is a 435-acre Vedic Vastu community in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina established in 2011.


The Mount Soma center includes a visitor's center, a meditation hall and the Vedic Sri Somesvara Temple.[1][2] The temple was built using 46 tons of hand-carved Indian granite and Vastu architecture.[3][4] The temple grounds include hand-carved black granite Navagrahas (nine planets) and a 20-foot statue of Lord Hanuman.[2]
