Diwali & Annakuta

Diwali & Annakuta Darshan will be available from Saturday 14th  –  Sunday 15th November 2020.

In adherence with National Lockdown, this year’s Diwali & Anakuta will be simpler, focusing on giving you the opportunity for individual Prayers (Darshan) of the Lord. 

To ensure a safe darshan experience, we have a limited ticketed entry system for which you will need to prebook online for free. This system has been working well it has been hailed as being safe and effective, by local authorities and visitors alike. Please book your Diwali & annakuta darshan time and ensure you bring the confirmation with you.
