Are Hindus idol worshipers?

Hindus do not worship a stone or metal “idol” as God. We invoke the presence of God and worship God through the image. The image or icon of worship is a focus for our prayers and devotions.
Just like we do not talk to the telephone rather we use it as a means of communication with another person. Similarly, an image or icon provides a means to focus and ability to enhance devotee’s worship. The human mind uses forms and symbols to awaken reverence, evoke sanctity and spiritual wisdom.

Important Announcement
Dear devotee,
In light of the recent Corona Virus pandemic, effective immediately our temple will be closed for all Devotees until April 3rd, 2020 but priests will be performing daily rituals and Abhishekams in closed doors. We have donated over $10,000 to local organizations supporting the COVID-19. Please support us in these challenging times.
Our priests will do special prayers and Archana to Lord Venkateswara for Sarva Roga Nivaranardham (Corona virus prevention & treatment) daily and you can sponsor that puja virtually.
