This village temple only opens on Sunday 5 PM -6 PM (April-Nov), where Puja and Aarti are conducted on every Sunday afternoon at 5 PM. All are welcome and visitors are expected!
The land was purchased in 1984 by Dr. Pidara with a vision in mind to someday build a Temple that would become an educational and cultural hermitage. Back then there was no Hindu population to support the Temple. It has been a long and hard journey.
Today, Collegeville and surrounding area has a growing Hindu population and there is a need for community to be able to gather and connect with the Gods.
Shrine today consists of a modest enclosed gazebo and an extension that sits on 3.2 acre lot. It lacks bathroom facilities and running water. Despite the lack of convenience, devotees are begining to come and with the devine grace of God the new Temple will be built.
We will start Sunderkaand Paath soon. Please stay tuned
Note: If it is snowy or rainy day, please call ahead or check the temple site
Check out Videos and Pictures from our Diwali program and other past events at the Temple.
