A gem of a place in the bustling city of Toronto. It is an old church turned into a temple. The building itself is historic and has great architecture. When you enter the temple through the main doors, you automatically feel as if you have been transported to a different world. They also have a nice vegetarian restaurant which serves... More

I absolutely love this temple, and have been visiting it regularly since I discovered it in 2001. The space is soaring, and the atmosphere extremely peaceful, yet vibrant and alive. The cathedral ceilings and traditional balcony area overlooking the main altar space and deity houses, make for a really wonderful blend of East and West aesthetics, seeing how this Hindu... More

This temple is so gorgeous. It is housed in a historical building and the contrast of the traditional European-inspired architecture and the Indian-inspired interior is phenomenal. There is also a nice little cafe for lunch and dinner and beautiful spiritual music a few times a day. The morning sessions are especially serene and meditative. Our little boy was hungry, and...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its most stylish high-rise residences and heritage buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools, jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
