Each table will only have one model and the activity will be open from 11am to 12pm.  Please contact Miten (0433370189) for any further queries.

*Aayambil is similar to Ekasana where one should take only one sit-down meal. Aayambil is special because one should not eat anything which has 6 types of Vigai which are Oil, Ghee, Yoghurt, Curd, Milk, and Sugar. One should also not eat any spices, green/raw vegetables, or fruits.

All are requested to park their cars at the appropriate location in MSJS Centre parking and around it once full by adhering to council parking rules and permit requirements.
