It was my very first experience to enter an Indian temple and joined their prayers. Thanks to my friend, Su. The prayer started around 7pm, there were live prayer band playing the music for praying. There was a man who conducted the prayer ( I dunno how should address him). He would pray to each god and goddess with flowers and waters and sing the prayers.

 

There were many gods inside. So the prayer took approximately 1.5 hours to 2 hours to finish. Other than the gods, there were many other statues from other religions at display.

The interior of the temple. From ceiling to the walls, they are all made of glass. It is all glittery inside.

 

So if you have not been there, it is worth a trip to experience and understand different culture. It is interesting to join the prayer, if you are worried that you do not know how to pray, just follow what others do!

(* a very friendly reminder:  Make sure you drink less water and use the loo before u travel to the temple. The toilets there are quite awful T_T)
