Due to Covid-19 restrictions and to ensure safety for all devotees, we have implemented a one way system in the temple, hand sanitising, temperature measurements and contact tracing. However, to ensure that all this is done, we need volunteers. This will allow us to open the temple for longer periods. If you are able to volunteer then please contact the Vedic Committee by email: or

In line with the UK government guidance, the Temple will open for personal prayers and darshan only. At present, there will be no communal gatherings of any kind including no communal Aarti.

A request for donations

Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, the Temple has had a great reduction in income.

The Temple's main income comes from donations, football parking and ACCA Hall hire. Since the pandemic all three income streams have dried up.

The day-to-day fixed costs as well as maintenance issues still need to be paid for. We are now having to use the Temple's emergency funds.

Your Temple needs your help more than ever now. We know these are difficult times for many of us. However, if all of us donated even 10 or 20 it will help collectively.

Please also consider creating a standing order from your bank account. A small monthly donation of even 5 will go a long way.

Please make a donation today

1. By a bank transfer or set up a standing order to:
Vedic Society of Southampton
Sort code: 602003
Account Number: 34671722

2. Send a cheque made out to Vedic Society of Southampton
to Vedic Society Hindu Temple, 79 195 Radcliffe Road, Southampton. SO14 OPS

3. Donate online through our website

Thank you for your help and support over the years.
