Take some photos as it is so unique out in the farming community that is a large part of Iowa.

Very nice people, very informative about their religion, and their food was excellent! We have never tried Indian food and was very glad to get the opportunity to try an array of dishes.

Drive north towards Madrid up the hill from the river clearing the trees. Look left past the cornfield and WOW!

A Hindu temple! In Iowa!

It's beautiful. I once brought a friend from India who was impressed. I've been myself to India thirteen times and can say this is a great asset to Iowa.

After reading about the Hindu Temple on TripAdvisor, my friends and I were interested about visiting the temple. On our way home, several miles south of f Madrid on Hwy 17, we found the temple next to a farm.
After viewing the outside, we were fortunate to meet a member of the temple who graciously showed us to the room where we stored our shoes and washed our feet to prepare to enter the Mandir where Hindus go to worship. We were not allowed to take photos but silently observed a blessing.
We are thankful to have had the privilege of experiencing a small part of the Hindu religion on our weekend trip to Madrid.
Be sure to visit the website to know the times when the temple may be open.

to find a beautiful ornate Hindu temple in the middle of ... well, nowhere! The address is Madrid, but the temple is not within the town limits (as far as we could tell). The sun was setting and there were a few cars in the lot. As we admired the structure, the grounds, etc., temple goers were leaving and getting into their cars. Although we would have loved to view the interior, we were uncertain if the temple is open to visitors. Regardless, it is a remarkable building, complete with intricate carvings and carved elephants. We took a few quick snaps and left.
