Mahila Mandal - Teen Dham Yatra to London

It has been a very successful summer for us in Leicester. It was a new start for our Pattni ladies with rejuvenated Mahila Mandal. Mahila Mandal organised a trip of three dham to London on Sunday 31st August 2008 . The trip was to visit three mandirs – Shree Nathji in Ilford, Jai Jalaram Jupadi in Hounslow and Swami Narayan Mandir in Neasden.

Shree Nathji Mandir - Ilford

The response to the trip was excellent. We had seventy five ladies and twelve children aged from 2 to 15 who joined in the double decker coach. The coach left at 8.30am. Ladies were in good mood chanting enthusiastically kirtan/satsang all the way to London.


Shree Nathji Mandir – Ilford

Our first stop was at the Shree Nathji Temple in Ilford. Pattni ladies held a spontaneous bhajan/dhun and Satsang at the Shree Nathji Temple in Ilford followed by the Prashad, a scrumptious lunch for all devotees, courtesy of the family of Pravinbhai Danabhai Arjan of Ilford. His generosity was greatly appreciated by the Leicester Mahila Mandal ladies.


The coach then left for the other two mandirs - Shree Jalaram Mandir in Hounslow and then to Swaminarayan Mandir. Pattni ladies from London, led by Bhartiben Pattni also joined them at the Neasden Mandir and gave a warm welcome.

Message from Bhavnaben Uday Gordhan, President, PPA – Leicester


This is just a note to thank all 87 members, including children who came to the teen thaam Yatra to London, (Shree Nathji- Jay Jalaram Jupdi- Swmi Narayan Mandir).The trip was a great success and the credit goes to everyone who made it possible, as without the members whose support we count on, there can never be a community.

We would like to thank Pravinbhai Danabhai Arjan and family who wholeheartedly arranged there after to Prashad for all the devotees. This was greatly appreciated by all the members who attended.
We also would like to thank Bhartiben/Pravinbhai for their hospitality and all the ladies who came to receive us and gave us a warm welcome at the Neasden Mandir and provided us with nice hot cups of tea and ganthia.


We don’t have enough words to thank all who looked after us while we were in London. I would like to take this opportunity to invite all PPA members to visit us in Leicester and give us the pleasure and a chance to return the hospitality that has been shown during our trip. I would particularly like to thank all the kids who joined us and behaved so impeccably during the whole journey.

Thank you

Yours sincerely

Bhavna U Gordhan
