- I had availed the services for Lakshmi Puja during Diwali (7/11/18) and I am really satisfied with how nicely the puja was done and the services offered including the Purohit who conducted the puja in Hindi. I would definitely recommend them. However, I would also like to say that I had opted for a puja kit worth INR 2000 which probably one can do without as well if one is ready to buy the items oneself. Thanks!Siddhant Singh Jan 25, 2019
