Paris Hilton was blessed in a Hindu temple during her visit to Mumbai.

The American socialite visited the city in India to strut her stuff on the catwalks for India Resort Fashion Week 2012 and she spent one day embracing her spiritual side by going to the Siddhivinayak Temple - a place of worship dedicated to the Hindu deity Lord Shri Ganesh.

She posted on her Twitter account: ''Went to The Siddhivinayak Temple for a blessing. Amazing to be in such a spiritual and special place. #Blessed (sic)''

Paris was joined on her temple tour by her 21-year-old model boyfriend River Viiperi, who described the holy place as ''gorgeous''.

He tweeted: ''Just went to Visit the Siddhivinayak temple it was gorgeous! Love the Indian culture, Now back to the hotel to pack 4am flight to NY!! (sic)''

Their religious stop comes shortly after the 31-year-old blonde visited a children's orphanage in Mumbai and donated toys to the deprived youngsters.

She tweeted: ''In Mumbai, just went to the toy store and bought lots of toys. On our way to the children's orphanage to go drop off the presents.

''Just left the children's orphanage. They all loved the presents I brought. What an amazing feeling to see them all smiling and so happy. (sic)''

Paris and River are currently flying back to New York City to attend the 'Family Business Dynasties' gala on Wednesday evening at which the blonde beauty will present her parents Kathy and Richard Hilton an award for their work with the European School of Economics Foundation.

Paris shared her excitement to her fans, tweeting: ''Honored to present my father with an award on Dec 5th at ''Family Business Dynasties'' Gala in NYC for a great cause (sic)''
