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.
