Indian Temples

Many people consider temples as places with gods in it. Do you know that there is a lot of science behind the way temples were constructed? Indian temples seem to have a lot of science behind them.

For example, temples were built at places where there is a lot of positive energy available from the magnetic and electric wave distributions from north or south pole thrust.

It is a common custom to go around the idol thrice after worshipping it. This is called pradakshina. There is a scientific reason behind this too. The idols which are worshipped by everyone will consist of a lot of positive energy and the idol will be radiating with it. When you stay near it the energy from the idol will be taken by you.

The ringing of bells have a benefit for people too. Temple bells are made up of various metals like cadmium, zinc, lead, copper, nickel, chromium, and manganese. These metals are combined in a specific mixture. When the bell is struck, each metal makes a different kind of sound and the sound lasts for seven seconds. The echo of the sound touches each of the chakras in the human body.


Most temple visitors must have seen the idols being washed with a kind of liquid. It is not a normal liquid. After washing the idol, the liquid is given to devotees as it is considered holy. This liquid has a lot of benefits as it is made up of basil, saffron, camphor, cardamom, and clove mixed with water.
