Shri Ram Mandir
“A Mandir (temple) is that which gives an atmosphere for the human mind to quieten itself into the contemplation of the higher Reality. A temple is a social centre and must become a place of cultural revival. It is a sacred place of reverence (Sangam), where love of the mind and respect of the intellect (Ganga and Jamuna) come together” – Swami Chinmayananda
Situated within Chinmaya Kirti, the Shri Ram Mandir is the home to the Rama Parivar (family) with majestic murtis in marble of Shri Rama, his consort Sita and brother Lakshmana. On their left is Hanuman, the “Ishta Devata” (beloved deity) of the Chinmaya Kirti who had been waiting patiently since 2004 for the arrival of His Lord. The temple was consecrated on Rama Navami day (April 10th, 2022) in the august presence of Swami Swaroopananda, Global Head of the Chinmaya Mission.
The temple has now become the focus of spiritual activities including monthly offering of bhajans by Chinmaya Swaranjali, pujas, religious ceremonies and celebration of festivals.
Daily aarti (waving of lamp with chanting) takes place at 6 PM and the temple is open to visitors during that time.
Other regular programmes include weekly chanting of the Hanuman Chalisa every Saturday at 6 PM after arati.
Regular visitors to the temple say they experience a feeling of “peace and calm” and look forward to coming back for worship, chanting, satsang (group study and worship) and contemplation.
We look forward to welcoming you and your family here soon.

Pujya Guruji, Swami Tejomayananda says…Sri Ram represents Knowledge, Sita mata devotion, Lakshman ji dispassion and Hanuman ji service and that we should imbibe these qualities in our hearts and practice them in our lives!
