We will be holding Chopda Pujan in our usual fashion at the mandir. Please ensure you bring all your puja items from home, and arrive by 4pm for seating and a prompt start. Please do not arrive late or you will miss the start of the puja. A list of items required for puja is shown at the bottom of this page.

Monday 13th November 2023 – Normal temple opening times
There are no specific celebrations on Monday and the temple will be open at the normal times for morning and evening prayers.

Tuesday 14th November 2023 – Ankut

The mandir will be open from 7am for Ankut darshan. Ankut Aarti will be at midday, and the mandir will close around 1pm. If you’re arriving early, please have due consideration for local residents and keep noise to a minimum.

We wish all our devotees all the very best for Diwali, and for the forthcoming New Year.
