Event description
Bhaktivedanta Manor is now open. Please book your ticket for you and your family to visit.

About this Event

We look forward to welcoming you back to your temple, Bhaktivedanta Manor, and hope you will appreciate the steps we’ve taken to safeguard the health of our guests and residents. To establish a robust system to enable you to have darshan in a safe environment, we’ve completed a thorough risk assessment and consulted with specific service sectors including external auditors. In line with this expertise and the government guidance, we’re pleased to open Bhaktivedanta Manor.

Please note that at present you can:

  • Take Darshan and offer prayers in the temple room. 
  • Visit New Gokul Farm and feed the cows. 
  • Get a takeaway from Radharanis Cafe.
  • Shop at Krishnas Gift Shop. 

As the threat of the virus subsides and when we receive further government advice, we’ll be opening more temple facilities.

KINDLY NOTE: YOU MUST HAVE A TICKET TO ENTER THE TEMPLE. PLEASE DO NOT COME TO THE TEMPLE WITHOUT A TICKET.

Should you be in a risk category, or have underlying health conditions we would strongly recommend that you do not visit.

We ask that you consider only booking tickets as a family once a week, enabling other families to book also take darshan.

What to expect on arrival

In line with our risk assessment and COVID plan, you and your travelling party will need to:

1. Show your valid ticket - WITHOUT A VALID TICKET FOR ALL OF YOUR TRAVELLING PARTY YOU WILL NOT BE PERMITTED ENTRY

Visitors are to arrive 15mins prior to their allocated slot so that checks etc. can be carried out.

2. Have your individual temperatures checked with a simple non-touch thermometer. If anyone in your party exceeds the normal temperature of >37.8c degrees or more, your party WILL NOT BE PERMITTED ACCESS. If you do not have symptoms and history of contact, you will then proceed to the car park.

3. For everyone’s safety, please strictly follow the instructions of the car parking team and the darshan queue team at all times. Once parked, please go to the darshan queue where you will be asked to sanitise your hands.

It is absolutely mandatory that face masks must be worn throughout the duration of your visit.

4. Volunteers will guide you through the darshan queue. At this time we ask that you:

  • maintain social distancing between you and other individuals i.e. 2m gap - the markings on the floor will help you maintain the distance (families can stand together)
  • do not stop to speak to others who have come / are leaving darshan
  • in line with government guidance, please refrain from singing
  • we ask that you do not pay your obeisances / dandavats to the Deities; rather, fold your hands in respect to Them. Please avoid touching any surfaces

5. On your exit, you’ll be offered prasadam and have an opportunity to donate to the temple. Please do this quickly and then return to your car. Where required access to toilets will be made available.

6. Finally, please stay within the barrier system and do not attempt to visit other parts of the temple or speak to the residents.
