Donations for Pratishta Dinam 2019
Every year family members have made generous contributions towards Pratishta Dinam. Costs have shot up considerably in the the last few years. Income has not grown to the same extent. Therefore we appeal for liberal donations this time. Please remember to make the donations in Indian rupees.
Last year, Pratishta Dinam happened to be on a Wednesday. It was also a working day. In spite of that, a good number of family members from far and near participated in the celebrations. This year we hope that the turn-out of devotees will be considerably more at Ambalavattam Temple.
A special invitation goes out to young members of the family to visit Ambalavattam Temple and attend the functions on Pratishta Dinam.
