    Hi friends,

    I am in Purdue university, west lafayette, Indiana. I am in my 5th month and planning for a seemantham function in my 8th month (ie between dec15th to Jan15th). Do any one of you know any vathiyar available in chicago or indianapolis who can either come home or do the seemantham function in the temple. Do anyone of you know the charges they charge?

    regards

    Hi Radhika - welcome to IL - congratulations on your pregnancy. I am not in your area - but I would suggest that you contact the Chicago temples directly and see if you can get information from the temple itself. Are there any temples in Indy? I am not sure - check online. Hope you are able to celebrate your seemandham in grand style!

    thanks shobana. I actually talked to the chicago temple. I am looking for vathiyar (not associated with atemple) if anyone knows so that I can pay them the money directly which will be useful for them than paying the temple a flat charge. Besides I looking for vathiyar who can come home and do the function. Do you know anyone like that?
