The Dravidian-style temple, constructed in the 1980s in Pearland, stands out from its relatively rural surroundings. This vast, ornate building is a replica of the world's largest temple dedicated to the goddess Meenakshi in the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu.

The temple's several towers, constructed with Indian white granite, feature ornate sculptures of animals and individuals from Hindu mythology.
