We could find a good panda, though they try to lure you, but it's upto you. Should strike a deal before taking the services. Pind daan was done in about 1-2 hours at Vishnupad temple and was done with all the rituals

Gaya pond daan is a ritual performed by Hindus to free the spirits of the deceased ones,this liberating them from the bondage of the materialistic world.To manage the millions of devotees who want to perform Pond Daan, platforms are built on the river side near this place.

If you read the story behind the pind dhan, you will understand the necessity of it. Although there are many issues like cleanliness, beggers, etc but when you focus on the holiness of this temple...
