church in India (specifically, Pune)?

Postby sasgrw » Wed Feb 06, 2013 8:50 am

I'm traveling to Pune, India, and will be there over two weekends. I was hoping to find a local meeting. When I traveled to China a few years ago, I was able to use maps.lds.org and found a meeting house. Foreign nationals were allowed to attend the meeting but local citizens were not (according to Chinese law).

I tried looking for Pune on maps.lds.org but no meeting houses were found.

I also looked on http://lds.org.in/ but couldn't find anything.

I'm hoping there's a remote chance that someone has been to India, Pune specifically, and has attended church there, and reads this tech forum :-) Kind of a stretch but it was worth asking.

As near as I can tell, the nearest meetinghouse is for the Mumbai Branch, 150km and 2.5 hours away.

Yes, I noticed that. I'm flying in via Mumbai and then driving to Pune. I like to think I'm a committed member but I'm not sure I'm going to drive back for church :-)

And the travel time is theoretical. I've been told that it takes between 2 and 4 hours to drive between the cities, depending on traffic, cows, and such. Really.

I was hoping that I missed something or that there might be a small group of members in Pune.

Just got back from India. Awesome food. The traffic is quite entertaining. it took us 3 hours to drive from Mumbai to Pune and then 4 1/2 hours to drive back from Pune to Mumbai.

I've been traveling there quarterly; has anything changed with regards to a branch in Pune in the last year?

According to maps.lds.org, Mumbai is still the closest branch.
