Mitra Temples

Prior to becoming christianized, worship of Mitra, known as Mithraism, was very popular in Europe. Christianity had assimilated many of the traditions of Mithraic worship to gain Mithra-worshipers as converts to Christianity by recognizing their customs.

In Europe Mithraic temples are known as 'Mithraeums', while the Sanskrit equivalents would be known as 'Mitralayas' or 'Mitradwaras.'
