Visitor Information

Useful information for visitors


What to Bring
Devotees should bring their own puja and abhishekam offerings. Please call the temple beforehand to arrange a suitable time and date for the ceremony.

Food
The temple will gladly prepare food for your family; we just need to be notified in advance. During the summer months daily annandanam is available. We welcome donations of food items for the kitchen.

Parking
We consider the temple as a very sacred place and ask you to leave vehicles in the parking lot. From there you can take the steps up to the temple. Please note the temple road is to be used for the drop off of disabled and older people only.

Volunteers
Volunteers are always welcome to assist at the Temple. We have a variety of projects throughout the year such as building, planting flowers, cleaning the temple, etc. Please feel free to offer your unique talents.

SIVANANDA ASHRAM YOGA CAMP
We invite you to also visit our Ashram only two minutes drive from the temple or alternatively a beautiful 10 minute walk from the temple down the ‘peace steps’ through the forest. Here you can have Darshan of Lord Krishna at the Krishna Temple, visit the Plane Museum which houses Swamiji’s colourful light aircraft plane that was famously used in his peace missions around the world or simply sit in the beautiful gardens and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the ashram. Information about our year round Yoga Vacation and ashram programs can be found at Reception.
