TIRATH YATRA WALK 2013, STAGE 6: RADHA KRISHNA TEMPLE SHYAMA ASHRAM


Stage six of the Tirath Yatra Sponsored Walk with Leicester Friends of Oxford Centre for Hindu StudiesRadha Krishna Temple Shyama Ashram, Cromford StreetThe goal is to visit 16 Hindu places of worship (mandirs) in Leicester on foot in a single day.

Tirath Yatra (Hindi: तीर्थयात्रा) is a journey undertaken as a pilgrimage.

Radha Krishna Temple was the first Hindu place of worship in Leicester, having been established in 1968 and it has been in continuous use since then.

At this point in the Holi Yatra Walk last year, I hung around so long getting photos at the end of the visit, and updating social media about this latest stage, that I didn't see which way the group set off and managed to become separated from them. I didn't catch up for about 90 minutes when they were starting lunch at Shree Hindu Mandir and Community Centre in St Barnabas Road. I wasn't going to let that happen again.

For some reason unknown to me, Twitter gave up at this point of the walk and I was unable to post any more tweets for the rest of the day.
