Our two nights at Dakshinachitra were wonderful all three of us really enjoyed our stay

All the staff were so helpful- You arranged a car to meet us from the airport, Mr. Balachrisna and the staff at the guest house were very welcoming, the restaurant staff prepared food for us when we arrived late in the evening. Also please give our special thanks to the gentlemen who look after the education programme. Prabhu and Vishnu. They entertained our daughter so well and she loved the magic show and bullock cart ride. All the staff that we met a real asset to the organization.

Thank You
