  • 5. Devotees are kindly requested to complete their prayers and leave the temple within reasonable time, so that other devotees waiting outside can be accommodated.

Outdoor gatherings

The Temple has decided not to conduct any religious functions outside the temple in the open. Hence any gathering of individuals other than persons living in the same household will not be permitted outside the temple within its property. People waiting for their turn to enter the temple may wait in their own vehicle until called for.

Devotees wishing to circumambulate the temple may do so individually or with people living in the same household. Individuals or groups disobeying the above directive may be evicted from the temple property or reported to the appropriate authority for necessary action.
