Aapti and Surangi two villages, situated 1 km apart, are in the tribal belt of the Union Territory of Dadra and Nagar Haveli.
The murti-pratishtha celebrations for the newly built hari mandirs in both villages were jointly held in Surangi.
On 26 April, over 2,500 women devotees attended the special Women’s Assembly.
On the morning of 27 April, 400 yajmans participated in the Yagna for World Peace. In the afternoon, a colourful nagar-yatra of the murtis was held which began from nearby Khadoli, passed through Surangi and concluded in Apti.
On the morning of 28 April, Pujya Bhaktipriya Swami (Pujya Kothari Swami) first ritually installed the murtis in Surangi and then in Apti.
