Bollywood actor and MP Govinda seemed to be on a religious tour of Rajasthan, having visited a Sufi shrine and two temples in the state in the past few days.
He offered prayers at Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti's Dargha in Ajmer, over 140 km from here, Friday.
"Govinda, accompanied by his wife and children, spent over 20 minutes at the shrine and offered a chadar and flowers," a shrine committee member told IANS.
After visiting the shrine Govinda drove to the Hindu holy city of Pushkar in the same district and offered prayers at Lord Brahma's temple.
On Thursday, Govinda along with his family had visited the Salasar temple in Churu district, over 170 km from here.
Dressed in a golden kurta-pyjama and a red colour stole, Govinda first chanted Vedic mantras with the pundits after which he was given prasad or holy offering.
Salasar Balaji being a shrine dedicated to Lord Hanuman, a photograph of the monkey god and a shawl were presented to Govinda, a local priest at the temple said.
"During the prayers Govinda also offered a coconut at the temple premises to make his wishes come true," the priest said.
He said the film star also expressed his desire to revisit the temple soon. Govinda was also given a traditional welcome and was garlanded by the temple administration.
Huge crowds had gathered at temple premises to have a glimpse of the film star. People started gathering as news spread of Govinda's visit. Of course, he didn't dishearten his fans and gave them an opportunity to click pictures with him.
