EME Temple-Closure of Science and Faith

#Temple in Vadodara

Eme temple of Vadodara which is run by the Army authorities is made out of aluminium and other alloys. This temple is famous for its concept of incorporating secularism. The Kalash depicts Hinduism whereas the Dome symbolises Islam. The tower represents Christianity whereas the golden structure above the tower stands for Buddhism and the entrance signifies Jainism.

As the full form of Eme states “Electrical and Mechanical Engineering”, the temple was built by the corps of that field from aluminium sheets. The place is open from timing 6:30 am to 8:30 pm with strict entry rules and prohibited photography. Devotees visit this temple to worship Dakshinamurti, an incarnation of Shiva as an ultimate teacher. The temple is equipped with a holistic essence and the garden surrounding it adds up to the serenity. Truly, one should always put up Eme on their itinerary when at Vadodara.

"THE BEST temple in vadodara period. Don't forget to carry your personal identification as the security here is extremely high. I used to visit this temple since I was a kid and it hasn't changed a bit since then. It is well maintained and the cleanest, I've ever come across. It is quite big. There are lush green grass lawns where you can sit and relax. The temple looks beautiful from outside. The architecture of the temple is such that your voice echoes when inside. Meditation inside the temple will help you a lot. The place is so calm, that one may find inner peace here. Not once, not twice, but I advice everyone to go here regularly. P.S. strongly insist to switch off your phone before you enter. "
