First of all, we would like to thank you for making the safety
as the topmost priority throughout the Covid pandemic while
visiting the Temple.
As you know you can book/sponsor private event at the Temple.
But still the situation warrants that we balance between
increasing Temple’s services gradually at the pre-pandemic level
and maintaining a surrounding that is safe to all—devotees,
priests and Temple management.
Together, we can reach this goal. As we navigate towards
increasing more services, we sincerely request you to adhere to
the following guidelines if you are organizing a private event:
For the event at Mahamandap, the maximum number
of people that can attend is 35.
For the event at the Gita Bhawan, the maximum
number of people that can attend is 50.
Packed Prasad can be distributed at the exit
while leaving from the Temple. Kitchen
facilities are not available for preparing or
distributing Prasad yet.
- Waring of facemask inside
the Temple will be greatly appreciated.
However, there is no limitation in the number of people that can
visit the Temple for a quick Darshan.
Thank you again for your continuous support.
