New Temple

GTB-2
The Guruvayurappan temple of Brampton is the fulfillment of a dream, the dream of all devotees of Lord Guruvayurappan who wished to see the Lord in his divine form, without crossing the seven seas. To make this a reality a large number of devotees and volunteers have spent countless hours and effort. Lord Krishna in his abundant radiance will be filling us with grace and prosperity in the years to come.

concept

This unique temple was built in accordance with ancient Hindu Shilpa and Agama Shastras (Science of Temple Construction) and accommodates Sree Kovils for Guruvayurappan, Ganapathy, Sastha, and Devi as at the temple at Guruvayoor, Kerala. There will be Chuttambalam, Thidappally, Valiambalam, Valia Balikkallu, and Chuttu Vilakku – perhaps the only Temple to have all these elements outside India. This temple, strives to be a pillar of social cohesion, aside from being the spiritual epicenter for the Hindus of North America.
