Food is integral part of Indian temple and religious experience.
In Indian temples, meal is served not only during festivals and holidays but temple and its visitor regular offers food to anyone, especially as a community service to poor.

The food given this way is often known as Prasad, which means blessed edible gift.
my first topic on the Temple food is the famous prasads from Lord Balaji's home Tirupati - he is widely revered as the richest Hindu Gods with a last known combined wealth of a well run american conglomerate or even Warren Buffet himself.

Lord Balaji is known for the popular practice of cutting hair – tonsuring – and offering them at the feet of Lord Balaji, the temple deity.
