Abstract
India is a land of sanctity and Temples. Temples play a pivotal role in the day today of
everyone‟s lives. Irrespective of caste creed and region people throng temples all the time. Visiting temples is a
part and people are accustomed to visiting temples either in difficulties or when blessed. Humans believe that
God sorts out miseries and in the second case, they throng the temples to show their gratitude to God for the
favors bestowed on them. There are temples which have special powers like Tirupati Balaji Temple,
Vaishnodevi Templein Kashmir, Kailash Temple, Shiva temple at Varanasi. There are other category of temples
in India which are akin to some kind of mystery and mysterious happenings in them. This mystery is beyond
science and human knowledge as none could find an answer for ages! First of all, Hindus particularly in India
and many Asian countries, visiting temples has become a kind of routine ritual. In fact, people hear something
mysterious and unusual happenings and beliefs. However, there are certainties which follow suit. The fear of
doing wrong, expecting the grant of favors by god when he is invoked through the pilgrims‟ prayers and
removal of disasters, difficulties and sorrows; these are typically the reasons why people always keep visiting
different temples. They travel long distances despite the expenditure involved. They offer huge amount of
money as offerings and drop the money in the „Hundis‟ (offerings‟ collection chests) By hook or crook people
want their desires to be fulfilled, wishes to be granted and enjoy the fruits of their prayers. This very faith makes
them all happy. Anyway, nothing lasts forever, even your difficulties. The world and human life isalways
propelled by the wants to live a trouble free life. This research paper investigates architectural constructions and
mysteries hidden in designing contemporary Hindu temples in India. Several temples, designed and put up in
contemporary times, continue with the traditional ways of Indian temple architecture. These have been
considered as places of great spiritual power and significance. Since for many scholars have studied these places
and their tradition and some excellent work has already been done which gives considerable insight into these
aspects. This paper discusses some of the hidden mysteries in Hindu temples in India. The intention to pursue
this study further to gain a greater understanding of the relationship between the spirituality and beliefs of
people on these temples. Hence, this paper deals with the key aspects such as mystery and sanctity temples
wallowing in misery in multifarious interpretations of select Hindu temples.

Key words: Sanctity, pilgrims, unusual, human life, gratitude, difficulties
