In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider making a donation in her honor to Dutt Jalaram, a temple founded by Chandrikaben and her late husband, Chandubhai Patel, in Chrandrikaben's hometown of Dakor, Gujarat.
Chandubhai and Chandrikaben dedicated their lives to helping those less fortunate than themselves. In 2002, they built the Dutt Jalaram Mandir to honor Jalaram Bapa, the Hindu saint from Gujarat whose lifelong mission was to feed the poor and needy. Dutt Jalaram serves as a pilgrimage destination for thousands of devotees throughout the year. In Jalaram Bapa's spirit, Dutt Jalaram provides food to approximately 100 poverty-stricken individuals every day. On special occasions, such as Jalaram Jayanti (Jalaram Bapa's birthday), Dutt Jalaram will serve food to approximately 8,000 pilgrims that have come from across the state of Gujarat to worship.
