After having a very delicious Mutton Curry with Roti Prata and Teh Tarik for breakfast, we headed to the Sri Senpaga Vinayagar Temple.

When we entered and asked for Sarongs, we were greeted by a very friendly and kind old man. He insisted in inviting us to the temple breakfast. An occasion that takes places only on Fridays and, luckily, we had just picked the right day for our visit. It was absolutely delicious! We were served vegetarian curry dishes and coconut sauces and even hot tea with milk. All devotees who entered the church first had breakfast before going to pray.

After the breakfast, we were completely stuffed and slowly made our way through the temple. The kind man, who wasn’t a temple employee but just an ordinary devotee, had said goodbye and gone home but we met many more very kind people.
