Temples and world records

In Sanskrit, mandir or temple means a place where the mind becomes still and experiences inner peace. All temples big or small are supposed to be an abode of God where people with a troubled mind, go looking for peace and calm. Some temples are special not because of their relation or hierarchy with God but architectural beauty and hugeness. Like everyone else temples too figure in the Guinness Book of World Records. Here are some of the largest Hindu temples complexes anywhere in the world, in terms of the height and area covered.
