The site visit is to the grand opening and inauguration of the community center of the Hindu Cultural and Educational Center on 1960 East Army Post Road in Des Moines. On Saturday, October 1, from 1:30 to 6:00 pm, this Bhutanese Hindu community will offer a “cultural program” including cultural songs and dances, bhajans in which visitors can participate (religious singing and dancing), guest speakers and dignitaries, and an introduction to the community. Modest but comfortable attire is recommended. Visitors will need to remove shoes and should not point outstretched legs (feet) toward the statues (murti-s) of the Gods.
Saturday, October 1, 1:30–6:00 pm
