Canadian PM on spiritual spree
Posted on Fri , 9 Nov '12
Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper who is on a week-long trip to Asia visited the ancient Someshwara temple in Bangalore along with his wife Laureen. Both of them arrived barefoot at the premises and were given a guided tour by the temple priests. They took keen interest in the architecture and history of the 16th century temple dedicated to Hindu God Shiva. The duo also participated in traditional 'aarti' as the temple priest chanted mantras and offered prayers for their marital bliss. The Canadian Prime Minister is on a two day visit to the IT hub after which he would leave for Manila.
