We liked the entire proceedings at the pool side with the swamiji doing the Surya Namaskaram and harati with vedic chanting by the gurus and students of the pathasala, with the audience serenly sitting in an orderly fashion and the ushat kaala dawn brightening the sky with the SUN God. Very auspicious for the occasion. One is gifted to... More

Datta Peetham, which captures the granduer of Mysore palace through its architecture,... More
