What is Archana?
Archana is a Pooja which is conducted at temples by way of thanksgiving to God. When we do Archana to a particular deity at a temple, we thank him for the good things He has bestowed upon us and the forbearance He has endowed us with while facing the trials and turbulence in life.

Archana is a kind of pooja we do at temples to praise or honor the Lord we worship and thank Him /Her for the good things the deity has given us and for guiding us through the ups and downs of life. Archana means ‘praising’ or ‘honoring’.

We do Archana at OUR temples by offering flowers and fruits to God. Normally, people say their name, Nakshatra, and Gothra and also mention the names and Nakshatras of their family members so that the whole family benefits by doing Archana at temples.

Given the surge in COVID19 cases, the temple will follow shelter in place till Sept 30th,2020 Temple priests will continue to perform Nitya Pujas, and all pujas will be broadcast LIVE. Temple won’t be open for devotees to physically come into the temple. However, all ONLINE pujas and ONLINE priest services continue to be available.
