One of the things that kids and to an extent the grown ups go to a temple is to get the prasad. The Laddoos and the payasams (Kheer) that you get from the temples were a personal favorite and still remains so. But even Atheists may flock in to the temples after hearing this news about what is offered as prasadam in this temple in Chennai.
The Jaya Durga Peetham Temple located in the suburbs of Chennai is going to be on the bucket list of a lot of religious people in days to come. This temple has eliminated the traditional forms of prasad and have replaced them with , please believe it burger
You may have slight difficulty in believing this piece of information since the internet is already full of pointless rumors.
The temple has replaced its prasad with burgers and brownies, cracker sandwiches and cherry tomato salads. Who wouldn’t want to be religious if prasad promises burgers and brownies.

The temple sends e-invites to its devotees to attend the prayers but that’s not the only change the temple has gone through to keep up with changing times. The temple also hands over a sealed bottle of mineral water to all its devotees.
K Sri Sridhar, the Oncologist who helped establish the temple said
THE IDEA WAS TO SHOW THAT ANYTHING THAT IS NUTRITIOUS AND PREPARED IN A CLEAN KITCHEN WITH A CLEAN MIND CAN BE SERVED TO GOD. IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE ONLY TRADITIONAL DISHES
The temple also organized what’s called a “birthday cake prasadam” for devotees who have birthdays.
“We maintain a computerised register of their birth dates and addresses and door deliver a cake prasadam to them. It’s a hit among the elderly devotees, because coming from the temple it adds a special touch to the occasion,”
Now this piece of news will atleast make the kids get up from the front of the computers and come to the temple. But for me this will not do. For me I like to devour those laddoos , Kheer and traditional dishes .
