Kauai Aadheenam Hindu Monastery
107 Kaholalele Road, Kapa'a, Kauai, Hawaii
Even for those not of the Hindu faith, Kauai’s Aadheenam Hindu Monastery is a visually beautiful, relaxing, and educational destination. All are welcome to visit this traditional South-Indian style monastery-temple complex where you can take a free guided tour (though donations are happily welcomed) of the beautiful grounds containing botanical gardens, ponds, and exquisite stone statues; attend a traditional Hindu morning worship ceremony (puja); and read more about the history, philosophy, and practice of Hinduism at the visitor center. However, before visiting, make sure to acquaint yourselves with the proper monastery protocol and dress code on their website at www.himalayanacademy.com.
