Sri Venkata Krishna Kshetra Temple

      

         Dear Devotees, Namaste,

 

        A temple is not vibrant place and complete without its devotees. Due to the pandemic situation, we were forced to close its doors         to devotee’s participation in its daily rituals.  With the situation under control and most of our devotees getting their vaccination,         we are opening the temple again in stages, so that devotees can physically participate in its daily rituals, Poojas, Abhishekas and         other community functions.  However, we will be limited in our services and request our devotees to adhere to the following rules.

 

  1.     Please wear your masks at all the times while visiting the temple, even if you have been fully vaccinated, including children
  2.     We cannot accommodate private gatherings or Poojas of more than 50 people at this time.
  3.     Please do not congregate in the temple premises
  4.     We would like to close the temple on time so ensure that you factor in sufficient time during your visit.
  5.     We reserve the right to restrict access if there are more than 75 devotees already inside the temple.


Temple will remain open during following hours:

 

Morning 08:00 AM to 12:00 NOON

Evening 05:00 PM to 08:00 PM

 

        Thank you for your understanding and supporting your temple during these unprecedented times.

Face Masks are Mandatory in the Temple


Namaste Devotees


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.


Current Temple Hours:

Sunday & Monday     - 5 PM to 6 PM

Tuesday to Saturday - 5 PM to 7 PM

Saturday - 11 AM to 12 Noon - Senior citizens only

Humble Request

Please 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.


You can make your donations online : CLICK HERE


or please send checks payable to "SRCF", Address - 615 S Beck Ave, Tempe AZ - 85281


Please help us.
