We have opened up the temple on a limited basis but are cognizant of the fact that Arizona is a hot spot for COVID-19. Hence we need to continue to take precautions and will continue the current arrangement for a little while more. We had mandated that all visitors to the temple should wear face face masks and most visitors abide by these rules. Unfortunately some don't.
The City of Tempe has mandated the use of masks in public. Given that the temple is open to public, visitors to the temple are required to wear masks. We request you to wear a mask. If not, you might be asked to leave, please do not make it difficult for the temple staff. This simple activity will go a long way in containing the virus and getting the temple back to normal. Again, please visit the temple only if you feel comfortable in doing so. Thank you.

Humble RequestPlease Help Your Temple
We hope you all are staying safe and following the CDC guidelines in these challenging times. As you are aware, in interest of the safety of our devotees, we made a decision to close the Temple to the public due to the Corona Virus (COVID-19).
The unintended consequence of this decision is that our revenues have taken a massive hit. Over 85% of our revenue comes from services in the temple or Poojas at home and this source has dried up. Similarly, donations from devotees visiting the temple has also stopped. We are now in a tremendous cash crunch and need to meet our mortgage expenses, utility bills etc. We need your generous donation like never before. Please also forward this to your friends who may not be on our mailing list as we need every bit of help we can get. Every dollar counts. And your donations are tax deductible.

Thank you for your cooperation and adherence to our rules during the times we were opened in the evening. We have received some requests and suggestions from senior citizens to visit the temple. Till now we have advised senior citizens or those with health conditions to abstain from the temple for some time as a precautionary measure. As an experimental measure, we will be open this Saturday (05/30) and Sunday (05/31) between 11 am and 12 noon for senior citizens only.
Again please visit only if you feel able and comfortable in doing so. The temple cannot provide assurances of any sort.
Please note the rules and conditions
If we find that discipline is being maintained, we may consider expanding the days the temple is open.
Thanks again for following the rules so far.
