  • Puja N Pujari helped us book a place at temple to perform annaprasana (rice feeding) cermony. Its a hassle free process, from booking a pandit and a slot in temple premises. Its is very tough to get contact details of temple management and fixing a spot to perform puja is a non bearable thing to handle. Thats where Puja N Pujari comes in hand, from assigning a pandit and puja slot and delivering puja material.
