I am a first time temple goer though I do pray from home and have gone to temples occasionally with family. Going to visit and see the two powerful gods Vishnu and Siva at one place is a dream come true. Today it will become true, god willing. Thank you, God Almighty, for now at least opening my eyes to the importance of prayer and devotion in temples. God bless all of you
