THOUSANDS of free vegetarian meals, cooked in a half ton pan, were served at the annual Krishna Festival over two days.
The annual festival on Friday and Sunday, held in honour of Krishna's birthday attracts up to 65,000 visitors - Hindus and non-Hindus alike - from all over the country to Bhaktivedanta Manor in Letchmore Heath.
The temple, donated by the late Beatle George Harrison, laid on music, drama and trips to its farm complex.
Organiser Radha Mohan Das said: "More than 1,500 volunteers worked for months to make the festival into the success that it was."
Visitors could view the milking parlour where the 44 cows are hand-milked whilst being played music.
Many of the children and some adults were dressed in fabulous exotic costumes meant to represent Krishna at various stages of life.
