Dear Devotee,

The health and wellbeing of our visitors, priests and the overall community is our top priority. Due to the growing concern around coronavirus (COVID-19), and in alignment with the best practices laid out by the CDC, WHO and other relevant entities, we have made the decision to withhold large celebration events for Ugadi and Sri Rama Navami until further notice.

Temple remains open for regular events such as daily poojas and harati services, and requests your adherence to the following:

i) Please wash your hands in the washroom before you come inside the temple
ii) Please refrain from visiting the temple if you believe you may be sick

iii) No prasad and theertham will be offered until the situation gets better

Thank you for your cooperation and continued support of our Temple.

Sri SivaKameswari Temple Management.
