To comply with state government regulations, we must track all our guests, so you must book online. Everyone must register online to be allowed entry (including children). Strictly NO BOOKING, NO ENTRY.

You must adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Book using your legal name. We must provide this information to the state authorities upon request.
  • You may book a maximum of ONE darshana per day and 3 every 7 days. We want to give the opportunity to receive the Lords’ darshana to as many people as possible. If you do not observe this rule, all your bookings will be cancelled.
  • Bring your Photo ID (photo or soft copy) to verify the identity you used to book.
  • Please arrive 10 minutes prior to your darshana time.
  • All visitors must wear face masks. Please bring your face mask with you.
  • Please maintain social distancing at all times, and take responsibility for your personal hygiene.
  • No meals will be served at this point in time.
  • Those who are offering rostered services must also book online to attend at public arati/darshana times so that we do not breach the maximum of 20 people allowed. You must also wear a mask: no mask, no entry.

Register for darshana at bit.ly/hk-darshan. Bookings are normally available up to 2 weeks in advance. However, depending on the changing COVID-19 situation, you may only be able to book 3 days in advance.

 

We hope to see you soon.
