What You Will See Inside a Hindu Temple is almost like the book What You Will See Inside a Mosque.

Hey, I'm starting at the beginning, all right? For those who don't know (I didn't) Hinduism is older than Christianity and way more complicated (at least to someone who didn't grow up in it.)

I found this bitty book informative and clearly written.

Beautiful book that takes you step by step through a Hindu temple, the meaning behind the symbols, different gods and rituals.
