3. Outing - Hari Krishna Temple - Sat 24th June 2017  

Join us for an outing to the Chatsworth Hari Krishna Temple. We will be exploring the temple and its grounds, taking in the detail and design. The temple itself is hugely decorated and ornate, with detail on top of detail, and is certainly a photographic smorgasbord! 

We will be given a talk at 10am about the temple and the Hari Krishna religion. Following the talk, we will proceed to take photos, and explore the venue. Once done, we will have lunch at the vegetarian restaurant.
