Hindu Temple of Rochester (HTOR) is a volunteer-driven, community-supported, non-profit organization. HTOR promotes and practices the ideals of Hindu religion through worship and education. The Temple strives for spiritual richness and human excellence through assimilation of the values emphasized in Hindu scriptures and applying them in our daily lives, while recognizing and respecting other religions and belief systems in their due context. Through this focus, it is our mission to be mindful of our Hindu heritage, develop a congregational sense of responsibility to the extended community we serve and create an atmosphere of extended family for all our members.
