Hindu Temple Visit

The temple was so interesting!

There was so much to look at and the temple was decorated so beautifully. We saw lots of different Hindu gods and watched a blessing which was very loud and musical – we helped by playing instruments and ringing bells. The lady in the temple was very patient and answered all our questions – we had lots! We also go to eat some blessed pieces of apple which they also feed their gods. We also took turns to sit on the top deck of the coach – most of us had never been on the top deck before so we were very excited to be so high up! When we got back we had snack and then shared some of the things we had learned. We also wrote down things we still want to know about. We also learned about the Aum symbol and tried remember some of the interesting facts. Did you know that when Hindu babies are born they put the Aum symbol on a babies tongue in honey to help protect the child! We are looking foward to learning more about the religion over the next few weeks.
