Luckily I got a very high level spiritual break and with the result I made an auspicious temple of Sri Bhagwan ghyandeo Ganga Mata (mother GANGES) which can be seen on Google if just search- "a secular tample in Agra only ". This is made in Indo-Islamic ancient architecture under the able supervision of Sri P.N.kulserestra a retired care- taker and Engineer of Archaeological Survey of India who had been looked-after heritage buildings in Agra. Google opens this site on No.One because this is a real secular temple around the world as you can see this on UTUBE as well.This temple has symbols of all the World's religions like Hinduism, Islam, Zoroastrian, Christian.Hence you are welcome to visit my temple as a spiritual site because some of local Excursion Agents have put this in their itinerary. Thanking you with kind regards and looking forward to injoy with you in my loving Agra on an earliest please.
