Hundreds of mothers, fathers, children and grandparents flocked to a world-renowned temple for a family fun day.

The Bhaktivedanta Manor, home to the Hare Krishna movement in the UK, opened its doors at the weekend to host its annual family fun day event.

Families could take part in a number of activities, including learning how to milk a cow and putting on a sari.

Devaki Devi Dasi of Bhaktivedanta Manor said: "Our annual summer open day was a resounding success, with over a hundred local people of all ages visiting Bhaktivedanta Manor - many for the first time. There really was something for everyone - the children loved having their faces painted, taking a ride on the bullock cart and having fun on the bouncy castle, whilst others enjoyed exploring the beautiful grounds and taking a tour of the Manor building.

"It was a wonderful day of community spirit, with everyone having a great time in the sunshine. We are really looking forward to seeing many more new faces at Janmashtami, Lord Krishna's birthday, which is our biggest annual festival and takes place this year on August 16 and 17."
