​​HINDU TEMPLE OF ROCHESTER

The region of Tamil Nadu in India is a delicate blend of rich culture and antique tradition that appeals to both natives and visitors from all over the world.  Tamil is the native language of Tamil Nadu. Endowed with a well defined written grammar 2500 years ago,  Tamil is one of the oldest known languages, and boasts many great classic literatures.   It is an official language in many eastern nations including Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Singapore.

Learning to read, write, speak and sing in such a rich language,  imbibing alongside the culture and tradition, all from native Tamil speaking instructors, is indeed a great experience!
