The campus at “Gokuldham of Nar” covers a variety of purposes – comprising of a temple, water filtration plant, guesthouses, old people’s home and school. I was made to feel very welcome and safe throughout my stay. Everyone on site is friendly and helpful regardless of their level of English, and most requests will be fulfilled within minutes.
The more site is run under swaminarayan principles, so you won’t exprience the diversity of food (no onions or garlic) that is available throughour the rest of india. However, fruit and vegetables are available about 3km away from the site.
The children are very enthusiastic and playful which makes for entertaining lessons. You will certainly experience some kind of `celebrity status` during your stay! During my stay I taught English classes, served snacks and gave music classes.
