“Gokuldham was rich in culture and personalities. From the students to the cooking staff at the temple, the campus was filled with welcoming faces. I was treated like a guest of honor in Gokuldham. I arrived in the middle of the night and someone (thanks Pravin!) was there to greet me and drive me to the campus. Everyone was extremely friendly and excited to see me. The teachers were a fantastic group of people who genuinely care about their work. The teachers showed me around the neighbouring villages and even brought me to their homes! Principal Manish really took time to show me around and sit to discuss topics such as leadership and values with me on a regular basis. One man who was painting the temple befriended me and I ended up spending 10 days with him and his wife in Rajkot, Gujarat, after I left Gokudham. Three meals were served hot and fresh each day. The accommodation was wonderful. I had a two bedroom, one bath accommodation which was clean and came with some very nice neighbours.
I even walked out of the experience with gifts from the school. I cannot express my gratitude enough to the wonderful people of Gokuldham. If you enjoy a rural, culturally rich teaching experience, this is a great place.”
