While there, they toured the world famous Palace of Gold, heard a discourse on cow protection, learned many of the stories behind the altars, participated in the chanting of the Holy Names and ecstatic dancing during aarti, and enjoyed prasad.

Thank you for connecting me to PureDevoteesSeva group and accepting me as a friend.
