Sri Somesvara Temple is a Vedic Shiva Temple that lies at the heart of Mount Soma, a spiritual destination center in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Sri Somesvara contains 50 tons of hand-carved granite from India, is 100% Vastu, and employs Vedic technology in all ceremonies. The Vedic Pries, Pandit Prasad, is deeply devoted to maintaining the purity of Vedic tradition and making every ceremony a personal experience.

Sri Somesvara is the first of five temples to be built at Mount Soma, a community that is being built according to the Vaastu Shastra guidelines for an enlightened city. The visionary and developer of Sri Somesvara and Mount Soma is Michael Mamas (http://www.drmichaelmamas.com/).

Come and enjoy the beauty, power, and depth of Sri Somesvara!

  • A drive to Sri Somesvara Temple (aka Mount Soma) can be a refreshing spiritual retreat. The temple complex is located on a small mountain a few miles off I40, which is a nice scenic drive.

  • Enjoy the drive to the mountain and the hindu temple is nicely located at the hill top. Many GPS devices still don't have this place listed in the maps, so use Google maps. Lots of trailers available around the temple and you can easily spend a day or half there. There are also options avaialble to rent a cabin if your prefer to stay a night of two. No restaurants there at the hill top, temple cafeteria probably operates only on certain days of the week.
  • Beautiful Temple
