Pearland is defined by a rich heritage with its inception dating back to 1894. The city showcases a few historic sites that speak to Pearland’s legacy including the pivotal Gulf, Colorado and Sante Fe railroad depot and the Old Settler’s Cemetery. The city offers a unique treasure in the form of the Sri Meenakshi Temple – the only temple dedicated to the Goddess Meenakshi off the shores of India. Built in the 1970’s, it’s the third temple built in the United States and it replicates the original in Maduri, India
