Home Stay / Home Food

Home stay and Home food at the Religious places

I got many queries from the blog readers about the availability of home stay and home food at the religious places, mainly for the following reasons:

1) To be protected from unhealthy / unhygienic food from hotels
2) Want to enjoy the village atmosphere at a village house with their kith and kin
3) It may contribute to the livelihood of some poor families

Note: Many inputs here are from the friends and internet. In case any of these is not worthy, please comment here.

Akhila Bharatiya Brahmana Karivena Nityannadana Satram

This organisation runs Chatram to serve free homely food to the pilgrims at the following locations:
Srisailam, Rameswaram, Badrachalam, Mahanandhi, Alampuram, Shiridi, Varanasi and Vijayawada

From the FAQ at their site (http://www.karivenabrahmin.org/):

  1. Is it meant for only Brahmin (Brahman) community?

Ans:  No. The name is misleading a bit. The food served at our centers is commonly called as ‘Brahmana Bhojanam’ in Telugu. It is famous for its vegetarianism and Satvik taste. This food is suggested in India by Yoga gurus. Our motto is to serve the humankind in Brahmin way. In Sanskrit, it said that “Brahmano Bahujana Priyaha!” meaning that ‘A Brahmin is adored by all’.
