Perform Archana

Archana is a special, personal, abbreviated puja done by temple priests in which the name, birth star and family lineage of a devotee are recited to invoke individual guidance and blessings. Priests chant 108 names of the Devata at whose sannidhi(shrine) the Archana is being performed for. HTCI facilitate this service for Devotee(s) who cannot come to temple and still wanted an archana to be performed on a specific day like their Birthday/Anniversary, etc.

For all Archana(s) scheduled online, Sankalpam will be done at the time of last Archana for the day which is usually 7:45pm. The Shrine at which Archana will be performed depends on the last pooja of that day. For Example: Every Monday it will be Shiva Archana; Tuesday it will be Hanuman Archana; First Thursday it will be Saibaba Archana; etc.

If you have specific request, please contact Pooja Coordinator (seva@htci.org) at least 2 days before the day you want the request.
