Enjoy the colour and drama of India’s festive pageantry
Guru Purnima or Asadh Purnima is a special day celebrated to pay homage to all teachers (Gurus). It dates back to the time of 'gurukuls' or 'ashrams' of ancient India where students used to get their education. Discourses are held in community gatherings to listen to readings of the holy book, Bhagawad Gita. Lamps are lit and meals served to everyone.
