Temple Now Open for Devotees!
Special COVID HOURS :Temple will operate 8:30am to Noon and 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm on all days.
Please exercise necessary precautions as said on signs posted in temple. MASKS required for every devotee.  NO PRASADAM or THIRTHAM will be offered due to safety concerns and PRADAKSHINA around deities is also restricted considering the safety of the priests. Please wait to make a visit if you are sick/still in recovery state or any COVID exposure. LIVE STREAMING POOJAS is still an option if you want to continue to do so.  We are sending priests out for private poojas with some guidelines in place. Let’s strive to keep our priests and community safe by exercising caution and following all precautionary measures.
Thank you for understanding and cooperating.
