The note carries a special thanks to CRIMSON PARK SHRIPRIYA, NATHDWARA,the best premium hotel at the temple city to organize the timely arrangements of different Darshans, though it was very difficult as there were long queues of devotees, still it is managed for us. Hotels close proximity to the temple was an advantage.
