Update to Mandir Guidelines & Mandir Activities During Current Coronavirus Pandemic

by | Sep 24, 2020

Dear Devotees,

Jai Shree Krishna

It is continuing to be a difficult time for all the UK as the Coronavirus is not going away.

The government is trying hard to balance the safety of the people and save the economy of the country from suffering further.

Similarly, we at Radha Krishna Mandir (Manchester) in Gandhi Hall are trying hard to encourage our devotees to start coming back to the mandir, whilst keeping the safety of our devotees and our Shastri ji in mind, as that is of utmost important and therefore we have followed the government’s guidelines and worked hard to make it a safe place. Events like Guru Purnima, Janam Ashtami, Sunderkand Patth, Hanuman Chalisa and Bhagwat Gita path have been taking place in the mandir itself, whilst celebration of Ganesh Chautherthi and Radha Ashtami took place through live stream on Facebook.

We are pleased to see the slow increase of devotees attending the congregation on Sunday’s and look forward to seeing more of you. Please check our upcoming events. 

If you have health issues or are elderly and more vulnerable, we recommend that you take care and stay at home until you feel safe to come out. For others, please try to visit the mandir as we need your support at this difficult time.
