|Why perform Archanas / Poojas?
An Archana or Pooja is performed to a particular God/Goddess to thank them for all that they have done. It is also performed so that God will help us and guide us in future in all our endeavors.
|When will you send the blessings?
If you have chosen Direct delivery from FedEx/Domestic courier as your shipping mode, your Prasadam and gifts will be shipped after receiving the prasadams from respective business associates or EPrarthana staff.
|How do I perform Archana to deities other than the main deity in a particular temple?
To perform an Archana to a deity other than the main deity, add the temple first to the Archana and then mention the deity name to which Archana is to be performed in the comments box, when you fill in the other details like name, address etc.
|Can I perform archanas to different temples on different dates?
Yes you can perform Archana to different temples on different dates. First add all the temples of your choice into the Archana Basket and select the different dates for different temples in the Checkout Page.
|If I perform archana to different temples, will I get separate blessings for each?
Yes you will receive blessings from each temple in separate covers marked with the temple/deity names on them.
|Who does the archana?
The Archanas will be done by the respective poojaris of different temples. The items for Archana will be supplied by ePrarthana through their staff/representative. The staff/representative will be present during the time of Archana and get the blessings, prasadam after the Archana.
|I cannot find the temple I am looking for. What do I do ?
We have put in our best effort to include all major temples. If you cannot find your temple please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be more than happy to include it. Another thing to keep in mind while searching for temples is that we have omitted terms like 'Sree', 'Arulmigu' etc before the temple name to facilitate searching. Therefore if you want to look up Kapaleeswar temple in Mylapore, search by the letter 'K' Kapaleeswarar temple and not 'A' Arulmigu Kapaleeswarar temple.
