Weekend Houston ~ Ugadi Festivities at Meenakshi Temple

Yesterday, we went to see Ugadi celebrations at Sri Meenakshi Temple, Houston. The program started with Pooja and Panchanga Shravanam, followed by dance and singing performances by very talented Houstonians. Traditional Ugadi meal including Ugadi pacchadi was served at the end. The festivities were organized by Telugu association of Houston and they really put together a nice event. We had great time meeting and mingling with friends.

Here are some photos and one video we have taken at the Ugadi Celebrations.

    Hi Indira, we are planning to move to Texas from CA preferably to Dallas or Houston (just so we could save some money). Are there lots of Indians around?
