Delhi NCR
TEMPLE DESIGN

God is everywhere

Yes, we Indians believe we can reach God just about anywhere and please him.

Once an evergreen tree (located in Delhi NCR) was converted into a mini-temple 15 years back. Now what’s left of the tree is a bare bark with a few green leaves. So you might wonder how this tree became a place of worship. Well its probably because someone placed a statue or two of the Indian God here, and one thing led to another. The caretaker of this temple, has now become a self- proclaimed priest. The people of this neighborhood have become superstitious about this temple & have been offering prayers over the years.

The tree / temple has also become a ‘wishing tree’, but we don’t throw a coin to make a wish, instead here we tie a red thread around the tree to make a wish. Once the wish is fulfilled you untie the thread.

Delhi has many such stories, come and experience it visit us.
