Stephanie Zubiri calls herself, hubby Jonathan ‘temple runners’
Regular columnist, tv show host, travel mag contributor, recipe developer, event host and blogger Stephanie Zubiri-Crispi went on a “temple run” in India with her husband, Jonathan.
She was referring to the actual “discovering of spiritual ruins and places of worship” and not the video game though, as she took a break from her full plate in the country’s Neelkanth, a village with a thousand temples.
“The priest gestured to us, said a prayer and touched our foreheads with his good intentions. We rang the bell and the clear, beautiful sound vibrated through the air and into our hearts, offering our prayers to the universe…The spiritual energy is truly palpable,” she said on her Instagram post.
Zubiri-Crispi also expressed amazement having celebrated Deepavali or Festival of Lights on their first visit to the country. The couple also visited the stunning Rambagh Palace, Hawa Mahal (Palace of Winds) and Amer Fort in Jaipur, Rajasthan state and of course, the Taj Mahal in Agra. They stayed at the grand heritage hotel, Sujan Rajmahal Palace in Jaipur and the five-star hotel resort, The Oberoi Amarvillas in Agra. #
The light poured into the temple as if it spilled directly from the heavens. We must have looked so estranged, with our clunky camera and tourist aura, but they never made us feel so. The priest gestured to us, said a prayer and touched our foreheads with his good intentions. We rang the bell and the clear, beautiful sound vibrated through the air and into our hearts, offering our prayers to the universe… This sacred temple in Neelkanth has been a place of ongoing worship since the 8th century. The spiritual energy is truly palpable… #incredibleindia #rajasthan
