Important Update
Start date: 23-3-2020

In light of recent Government announcements and the escalating Coronavirus pandemic in NSW, the temple will temporarily be CLOSED, effective Monday 23rd March 2020 at 10.00 am, until further notice. We have not taken this decision lightly; however, these measures are necessary to protect the health, safety and well-being of all our community.

Daily Darshan will continue to be provided on our website, Facebook and Instagram pages.

We encourage everyone to keep safe and continue practising good hygiene. Look out for the elderly and most vulnerable and keep providing them support where you can. Try to minimise your time outdoors, and face to face interactions with other people. For more information on what you can do to protect yourself and others around you, please visit www.health.gov.au.

We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as required. We appreciate your understanding and patience at this critical time and pray for your health and well-being.
