Good God

If It Please Your Worship

A couple in the UK have had more than 50,000 visitors to their home since they turned their spare bedroom into a Hindu temple. Worhippers queue to visit the temple Dhirajlal and Sushila Karia set up in Clacton-on-Sea, because the nearest alternative was 45 miles away when they moved there 29 years ago. They shipped 17 marble statues of gods and goddesses from India and installed them in the room.

FOOTNOTE: Pray Pal.

People sure do some weird things, fancy having people trapsing through your house the whole time, must be really weird.

Love the pun! I know Hindus have a temple at home (usually the corner of a living room) but to convert a whole bedroom and import statues? That definitely is seeking favour from the gods!!

sharing your space with others for a good cause is very noble indeed.i hope people of all faiths,without discrimination, are allowed entry.it helps to develop and strengthen the bonds of human relationship.
