Every day, devotees come to the Temple and offer a candle to Lord Damodara. The Damodarastakam, a series of eight beautiful verses by the great sage Satyavrata Muni, is sung daily in the morning and evening.
4:20pm – 7:30pm
Candles will be provided free of charge to everyone please do not bring your own candles, lamps or ghee wicks for offering.
Offerings will be paused between 6:30pm – 7pm as the curtains will be closed at this time. During this time there will be a special talk given on Krishna’s pastimes.
