Sri Krishna Janmashtami 2018 Festival Guide

Dear Friends
The 2018 Sri Krishna Janmashtami Festival begins on Saturday. There is loads of information to share. All information is important and will definitely ensure you have a wonderful Janmashtami experience at the Temple.
Parking & Security
One of the biggest concerns when visiting the temple is parking and safety. Parking will be available in and around the temple with park and ride facilities. We will have visible security, police patrol, and volunteer security. It is important that all worshippers feel safe and secure during their visit to the temple and therefore we have put extra effort in this regard.
