A mandir is a Hindu temple. A mini-mart is -- well, of course -- a small grocery store or deli, typical of Queens. This photo of the two side-by-side is typical of Liberty Avenue where the immigrant culture (from the Caribbean shores of South America and its roots in the Indian subcontinent) meets the worlds of New York and America.
