Inside a Mandir

Year 3, I need your help! My friend’s  son has to complete a project about the Mandir (the Hindu place of worship) next week.  He has never beeen to a Mandir before.

Can you try to describe the various features for him so he has an idea what it is like inside. Try to use descriptive words and phrases so that he can create a picture in his mind.

    To Adam.
    Don’t worry I’ll tell you lots of information. In the prayer hall you pray and there are 7calls and yellow
    fairy lights. Also there are juicy apples and nice decorations.The elephant god is called Ganesh: he has a long trunk
    and there is a other small prayer room where the congregation read.

    Dear Adam,
    Outside a Mandir you will find ribbon at the top anda red flag which is called a Dhaja.

    At the bottom of the Madar you will find Hindu writing with flowers at the sides of the writing.

    Adam, when you enter the Hindu Mandir and you look at the ceiling you will see beautiful patterns and designs. You will see the elephant god Ganesh-people put flowers around Ganesh. Ganesh has a massive trunk. He’s so massive, he’s bigger than a human – he’s as big as four humans. Also you’ll see people singing their prayers from their holy book (Jeeta) into a microphone in front of lots and lots of people. In another place in the Mandir you’ll see the gods and prashad (fruits and vegetables) . Eisa Hussain 3 Alder

    There are 7 gods and they are wearing precious jewellery around their neck and hands. These are in the prayer hall. Also they have golden lovely tiles too. Did you know that friut is all around them lights? The fruit is given by the people who visit the Mandir. In their hands the statues are holding arrows. Around their necks they have golden necklaces given by Hindus. There are lots of colourful lights to show the gods vision. In front of the gods are scented flowers which are given as gifts.

    Dear Adam, inside the Mandir there is a large room with a large elephant.That elephant’s name is Ganash. It is beautiful and multi- coloured and has jewellery and a crown on top of its head because it’s a god. It also has a flower necklace around its neck. It has a gold and pink backround. People put presents around the god to remember him. The god has his arms out and is holding a plate of fruit. The god is sitting on a giant chair stuck to the wall. It is wearing a nice long dress and has a little beautiful pattern on his forehead. It has large ears and the trunk of the elephant is inside the long beautifull dress. .From Muneeb and Shamima
