Prasad (lunch) in Ayodhya

‘Prasad’ – Ayodhya Dining Experience

– by appointment

A meal often narrates a lot about the society, its beliefs and the people. In Ayodhya temple culture is most prominent and life revolves around it. Lunch in Ayodhya every afternoon begins with a ‘Bhog’ – offering to the deity with prayers being recited for health and wellbeing and then the distribution of ‘Prasad’, where guests are seated on the floor and a hearty meal which consists of a vegetarian fare without onion and garlic is served on dry leaf (pattal).

Tornos guests can experience this Temple Lunch at a 150 year old temple with the head priest, ‘Mahant’ and his family in Ayodhya. After this blessed lunch the Mahant will engage in conversation with the guest sharing not only some intricate facts about Ayodhya’s ethos but also his interpretation of an episode from the holy Ramayana.
