What you'll do

As Indian culture is rich in gods and goddesses, an exquisite way of experiencing the religious abundance would be by immersing yourself in the positivity of a holy ritual/ puja , organized exclusively for you.

The puja is conducted early in the morning and hence you are required to freshen up around crack of dawn, get ready and wear fresh clothes. It's always best if the ritual isn't delayed and begin on time, so punctuality is very much needed.

You will then be then taken to the temple where the ceremony will be performed and there, you'll be participating in the puja as guided by the priest who'll be conducting this puja .

You'll be asked to offer flower petals (provided by me ) at successive intervals by the priest during the puja experience.

After the successful culmination of the puja, the guests will receive "Prasad" which are basically just fruits that are considered to be blessed holy food and that will conclude the puja experience.

In case, you have any questions or are curious about any of the Hindu religious beliefs , you could ask interact with him and i will act as the translator between you guys.

Meet your host, Avinash

Host on Airbnb since 2015
  • Identity verified
I'm a young entrepreneur, investor, the founder of Hiatus' Doors, bread & breakfast homestay, and an awardee of the title of Superhost seven times in a row. I harbor a profound interest in knowing new people and their cultures which has driven me into hosting travelers from around the world since past four years and have been conducting customized pujas for our guests who are curious on an intimate experience of Indian culture, since.

I have spent a better part of my life in Delhi, which gives me the confidence to be able to say that I have expertise in this city, its culture, food junctions, monuments, lesser-known attractions and much more.

These pujas are performed by my father, who is a professional Vedic astrologer and priest and has 28+ years of expertise.
