On the Actual Sankranti / Pongal day Tuesday, January 15th we will be open for extended hours in order for visitors to have an opportunity to visit and serve the cows.
Extended hours: 7:30am – 10:30am and 4:30pm – 7:30pm.
Cows and Bulls have special place in our tradition, they are integral part of our life and play a very vital role in agricultural activities by helping to plough in the fields to prepare for farming and providing the most nourishing milk for our living. Since we take milk from the cows we treat them as our mother. Hence In various parts of India the farmers honor their cattle during Sankaranti by celebrating it as a day of thanks-giving to them and worship them for the well being of the society.
