Atlanta trip - Hindu Temple
In Lilburn GA, where David's sister lives, is the largest Hindu Temple in North America. Here is the link to their page. Alex gave us directions and we were amazed when we arrived. A service was taking place in 30 mins and we were invited to stay. The service lasted 15 mins. and involved chanting and candles. It was quiet and reverent, I enjoyed the experience. Women sat behind the line and men sat in front of it. The statues in the sanctuary were dressed beautifully, but instead of the turbans from the photos they were wearing stocking caps. The weather was cold for Atlanta, 55 to 65 degrees.
