Darshan at Temple
Devotees can now visit the temple during regular temple hours without scheduling an appointment prior to the visit. Regular temple hours are provided both in the website footer and in the Contact Us page. If the temple is already at capacity, devotees will be requested to wait in the car until the required number of people already present leave the temple after darshan. Please wear a mask and follow all restrictions including maintaining social distancing. We request you to leave the temple after darshan to reduce wait time for other devotees. We request and appreciate your co-operation in this regard.
Archana and Sankalpam Procedure on Saturdays
An update on the Archana and Sankalpam procedure performed on Saturdays hereafter: This new procedure will start from May 29th onwards. The temple’s incumbent priest Raghuram Bhattar will chant mantras (from Bangalore, India) and the floral Archana will be simultaneously done by Chandran Gurukkal in Calgary. This chanting will be in traditional style for Perumal and will have the special vibrations for everyone’s well-being. So, the Sanatan Temple’s devotees will have the privilege and blessings of both Gurukkal/Bhattar with the grace of Lord Balaji. Please take the opportunity of this new pooja format and please do book your Archana and Sankalpam in support of this new format. We pray that this intensive chanting for Perumal will usher in a new phase in our life free from Covid-19 stress and bring the much needed relief to the community
Lord Venkateshwara and Padmavathy Thayar coming to Calgary from TTD!
It is our honor and pleasure to announce that we will soon have as the principal deity at this temple, the Moola Vigraham of Sri Venkateswara Perumal with Padmavathy Thayar, coming directly from Tirumala Tirupathi Devasthanam, India.
We are the first temple in Calgary to have Moola Murthy of Lord Venkateshwara (Balaji) from Tirupathi. This was possible through the good offices of Prasad Panda MLA from Calgary Edgemont and his contacts in the AP Government in India. We also owe our gratitude to the support from the devotees. Please find attached the poster below with additional information and contact information of team members to get details about sponsorship opportunities.
