VIDYALAYA - Youth Education School
An important aspect of Hinduism is to educate our Youth about our culture and religion. The Hindu temple of Eastern Iowa achieves this through our unique program, Vidyalaya. The focus of this program is to help our youth understand our rich Hindu culture, our scriptures, rituals and Dharma.
