My father and I are one of the trustees at Shree Narayani Dham, which is a Hindu temple complex situated in a scenic hill station in Maharashtra called Lonavala.
What is Narayani Dham?
Shree Narayani Dham provides an enjoyable retreat to tourists in Lonavala, all in presence of God. There are several facilities as the temple complex is spread over 4.5 acres. The most important, however, is the social aspect, Shree Narayani Seva Santhan and Shree Narayani Nari Chetna Kendra, through which activities are carried out for the upliftment of the society
It houses a temple of Shree Durga Maa, Shree Siddhivinayak, and Shree Salasar Hanuman. There are several other facilities such as housing, food, banquet halls and medical & health related rooms.
The aim of Narayani Dham is to put “society first”. We focus on uplifting impoverished and marginalised communities through awareness campaigns. Furthermore, we strive to educate the youth about Indian culture in order to harness the values and skills of the ancient times.
HOW IT ALL STARTED
The construction of Narayani Dham was a joint effort by a group of people who wanted to construct a place for welfare of mankind. It all started with a vision to create something in 2008. The campus was inaugurated on 24 May, 2010
When Shree Narayani Dham was built, the trustees were committed to providing a peaceful, inexpensive and most importantly, luxurious retreat to everyone who wished to stay in Narayani Maa’s shadow. The temple complex has a tremendous number of facilities, all of which are maintained to perfection!
