The Krishna Ras Trail
A peek into the 'Kitchen of the Gods'
Led By:  Pushpesh Pant

Those passionate about food often say it is a path that leads to divinity of the body and soul. Maybe that’s why food has always been an integral part of every ritual. The Krishna Ras Trail explored various godly meals.

Experience Architect, Prof. Pushpesh Pant, tantalised our taste buds and hearts as he walked us through various temple foods of Delhi, Mathura, Vrindavan, Jaipur and Nathdwara. The 5 days trail helped us explore eats served at the ISKCON Temple (Delhi), Raman Reti Temple (Mathura), Shrinathji Temple (Nathdwara) and much more. It was a trail full of the famous pedas, sattvik cuisine, indulgent prasads and bhogs. All this while we witnessed various aartis and Gods' abodes.
