10 Scientific reasons behind why you should visit Temple.
Paying visit to temples are not only to get blessing but to get a calm and better mind set. The following scientific reasons are the actual purpose of visiting the temple according to the Hindu script.

1-Location and Structure of Temple:
Temples are found at a place where +ve energy is available abundantly. The idol of God is set in core center of the temple, known as “Garbhagriha” or “Moolasthanam”. It's the place where earth’s magnetic waves are discovered to be most extreme.

2-Removing Footwear Before Entering Temple:
In olden days, temples were built in such a way that floor at center of temple were good conductors of these +ve vibrations allowing them to pass through our feet to body. Hence it's necessary to walk bare footed while u enter temple.

3-Ringing the temple bell– Hearing Sense Activated:
The bell produces a sharp and enduring sound which lasts for minimum of 7 sec in echo mode. Duration of echo is good enough to activate all 7 healing centres in our body. This results in emptying our brain from all -ve thoughts.

4-Lighting Camphor in Front of Idol – Sight Sense Activated:
Inner core of temple is usually dark where the idol is placed. You usually close ur eyes to pray and when you open ur eyes u should see the camphor which was lit to do the Aarthi.This light activates your sight sense.

5-Put your hands over the camphor flames and then touch eyes – Touch Sense Activated:
Once camphor is brought to you after offering prayer, you usually put your hands over camphor to make your hands warm and then you touch your eyes. This action assures your touch sense is active

6-Offering flowers to God at the temple – Smell Sense Activated:
Flowers are good to see, spread good fragrance, very soft to touch. Only specific flowers are used for offering to God. Fragrance of flower, camphor keep ur smell sense active and pleasant, giving calmness to mind.

7-Drinking Theertham – Taste Sense Activated:
Next part of your act would be to drink theertham from a silver or a copper vessel. The water used for theertham usually would contain Thulasi leaves dipped in water and must be stored at least for eight hours in the copper vessel.

According to Ayurveda, water stored in a copper vessel has the ability to balance all the three doshas in your body, (vata, kapha and pitta) and it does so by positively charging the water. By drinking this Thulasi water you activate the taste sense.

8-Doing Pradakshina around the Garbhagriha/Moolasthanam:
After performing all rituals you have to walk around the idol inside Garbhagirha, in clockwise direction 9 times. Pradakshina literary means right side in Sanskrit. When u do pradakshina,u tend to absorb all +ve vibrations.

9-Applying Tilak/Kumkum:
On forehead, between eyebrows, is a spot that's considered major nerve point in human body since ancient times. The Tilak prevents loss of “energy”, ‘kumkum’ between eyebrows is said to retain energy in body and control the various levels of concentration

10-Why offer Coconut and Banana to God when you visit temple:
Coconut and Banana are the only two fruits in this world which are considered to be “Sacred fruits”. In the case of coconut and banana, the shell or the sleeves is not used for anything.

To grow a coconut tree, you have to sow the entire coconut itself and Banana tree grows with sampling. This is why Coconut, Banana has an imp place in all religious activities. Our Ancestors found this reality long ago and they made it as a system which is followed religiously.

Critics say God is everywhere then why go to temple?It's bcos a devotee needs a calm place for prayer. Adi Shankaracharya established 4 Mutts,12 Jyoti Linga temples and 100s of more in a short span of 32 yrs so that ppl visit temples regularly. Hope we understand the importance.
