Due to an upcoming Lunar Eclipse on Saturday, October 28, there have been adjustments made to the timings for devotees visiting the Kukke Sri Subrahmanya Temple and Kateel Shri Durgaparameshwari Temple.


At Kukke Sri Subrahmanya Temple, the night Mahapuja will conclude at 6:30 in the evening. Following this, there will be no darshan (viewing) of the deity, and dinner will not be served. It’s important to note that there will be no Ashlesha Bali service in the evening as well.

On the other hand, devotees at Kateel Shri Durgaparameshwari Temple will experience no alterations in their darshan timings. The night Mahapuja will also finish at 6:30 in the evening, but special observances during the eclipse, including abhisheka (ritual bathing) and pooja (prayer ceremony), will provide an opportunity to witness the Goddess, make offerings of ghee and oil, and participate in the religious traditions associated with this celestial event.
