All facilities will be provided as needed which includes priests as per your tradition and food for a specified number of people.
People who can afford to pay for these rituals can also utilize the services and donate accordingly. We expect people utilizing our gnanavapi facilities to be honest about their financial condition so that we can help them accordingly. There are 12 rooms available and can be booked in advance. We also have facilities for performing Srardham/ Devasam ( yearly Thithi) as per their tradition.
