Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update

Temple is closed to the public

The Temple will be closed to the public until further notice.
The Sunday morning Temple opening will now stop until further notice.

We have had a robust Covid-secure system in place at the Temple and to date there have been no cases arising from the Temple. However there is a new variant of Coronavirus that is much more infectious that has emerged in South-East England recently. For the safety of the community, the volunteers and the priest the Temple will be closed to the public until further notice.

We will closely monitor the situation and review this policy as the situation changes.

Please follow the advice of the authorities.
Please maintain social distancing, regular hand-washing, wear a face mask.
Please accept the Coronavirus vaccination when offered to you.
Keep Safe and Stay Well.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Raise funds for Vedic Society on AmazonSmile

Do you shop online on Amazon? If you do, you can now raise money for Vedic Society without it costing you anything. Vedic Society has registered on the AmazonSmile website.

On your first visit to, you need to select a charitable organisation to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. Please search for and select ‘The Vedic Society Of Southampton’. Amazon Smile will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make through AmazonSmile will result in a donation.

For more information on AmazonSmile please click here.

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.
