Heritage Excursions – Traverse the Silk Routes in Houston

Saturday, April 5, 2015, 1:00 – 5:00 p.m

Many of the ethnicities that lived along the Silk Route make their home today in the amazingly diverse city of Houston. As a compliment to our April 6 talk on the Silk Route, we invite you to travel to sites of faiths and cultures that were part of these fabled roads.


Your journey begins at Chung Mei Temple where we’ll board a tour bus. Explore Hindu and Buddhist temples , as well as a small Islamic mosque. Discover sacred traditions as cultural guides enlighten you about these beautiful spaces. Enjoy refreshments at the Turquoise Turkish Cultural Center while you tour a beautiful site preserving the many silk road cultures.

Experience living traditions.
Reach out to touch a past that connects to the present.
