Visiting temples on auspicious days, festivals and even on a daily basis is one of the habits that almost every Hindu has and for that case any human being (based on their religion), visits an appropriate devotional place! This is one such belief that is enforced by most of the Parents on their children saying that it helps you be connected with the God!
My question is why is it required to visit a temple to be connected with God?
What are the benefits that one gets by visiting temples?
You can still be connected with God, even without visiting a temple. Please do not reply with answers saying that visiting a temple will imbibe positive energy or rejuvenates all your senses or helps you connect with God better than at home. The hypothetical theory that gives this explanation holds good to temples that were built earlier with all the Vaastu and accoustics in consideration. Now-a-days there is a temple or a devotional place on every street.
You can still be connected with God staying anywhere, as the presence of God is said to be existent everywhere!
