Pilgrimage to the Albany, New York Hindu Temple

More than 75 Bhutanese people of all ages, made a pilgrimage to the nearest Hindu Temple in Albany, New York. This large group filled one school bus and two 15-passenger vans! This trip lasted all day and included many opportunities to reflect, pray and sing within the Temple. Everyone enjoyed a meal provided by volunteers from the Albany Temple. We thank everyone at the Temple for hosting us so kindly and graciously!

Here is a link to some of the photos that were taken on that pilgrimage!

The temple is a very nice medium-sized temple. The temple is open every day. There is also a very large cultural center building beside the temple. The cultural center has a large kitchen, dining hall, classrooms and an auditorium with a stage for dramatic performances.
Every Sunday food is offerred for a small fee at 11:30 am. When the Bhandari's visited the temple and cultural center, they were generously provided with a full meal at no charge!
