Our Temple priests are available to perform religious services for families in their homes, rental halls or at the temple. Please review the THT Priest Services list below, for the list of priest services we offer.
We kindly request devotees not to request specific Priest, all requests are assigned to our Priests in the order it is received. THT has two experienced Pandits who can perform all Sampradayas,rituals, pujas, speak english and many indian languages and share equal responsibility. Temple management cannot always guarantee that we can assign requested Priest. Based on Priest availability and Temple needs, Temple management will assign available priest.
