Stay Safe, Stay Healthy!

If you are unable to see moon due to cloud, no worries. Traditional practice is to pray and eat in the morning after sunrise. In our opinion, since exact moon rise time is accurately known now-a-days, if it too cloudy, it is fine to pray and eat few minutes after moon rise time.

Please check with your nearest temple about their Puja day and time (usually this would be 3pm onwards), many temples are organising group pooja.  Click here to see our list of temples in New Zealand.
