    Hi Madhu,

    You have actually brought back so many beautiful memories that we had in Eindhoven in 2013 when we were residing there by going through your site. Very well explained about so many important stuffs. We have now moved to amstelveen.

    I would also like to suggest you that you could add the temple which is there at eindhoven .Trilok dham mandhir: address Tongelresestraat 371 Eindhoven Netherlands 5642. Indian communities perform various poojas and festivals.

    At Asmtelveen : There is a friday market (only on fridays till 3:00 pm) at the centrum which provides varieties of veg and fruits for a reasonable price.

    May be these two points could help people who are spiritual and for their needs

    Thank you.
