    Dear devotees

    The temple has accumulated various articles (saris, dhotis, shirts utensils etc.) donated to the temple. Some of them, in particular Sarees and dhotis that were used to adorn the Murtis on various religious festivals, have some sentimental and religious values. These articles are over and above what has been given to the priests. 
    During the festive season in years 2015, 2016 and 2017, we put such articles on display. Devotees took them after making a suggested contribution to the temple fund. It was well appreciated.
    This year also during the festive season, we are planning to do the same on the following dates. 


    Saturday          October 13      11am - 2 pm
    Sunday            October 14      11 am - 2 pm
    Saturday          October 20      11 am -2 pm
    Sunday            October 21      11 am - 2 pm 
    Sunday            October 28      11 am - 2 pm 
    Sunday            November 4    11 am - 2 pm 
    Sunday            November 11  11 am - 2 pm 


    Please come to see the items. Thank you.
    The Board of Directors


    Dear Devotees

    In March 2017 we sent an email to all our devotees about new housing development near the temple being planned by a private builder. Since then we have seen more builders with signs of housing construction in the area.
    Since the temple management has abandoned the idea of building a housing facility for the seniors at the temple premises, we would like to pass on this information to those devotees who still would like to live near the temple.
    If you plan to live near the temple, this might be the time to visit the sites.
    Thank you.
