Anuradha M.

My family and I wanted to conduct a puja since a long time but since we are living in Ontario, Canada, it was difficult to do so and I didn’t know how to arrange for the ceremony. After contacting Online Temple, my job was done and the puja was done by them. We faced absolutely no difficulties as everything was provided by them. Their service is great.
