The Guruvayurappan Temple of Brampton (GTB) has minted an exclusive and unique medallion. A very limited quantity of only 1500 serially numbered medallions has been made.
These exquisite pieces have the intricately detailed image of Lord Guruvayurappan. Fashioned out of nickel-silver and plated with 24 carat gold at jewellery strength of 15 microns, the medallions are approximately 5cm in diameter and 3mm thick. Each piece is individually packed in a clear plastic capsule and placed in a special velvet prestige box. An excellent way to own one of these unique medallions and at the same time contribute towards our dream of a Guruvayurappan temple in Canada is to make a donation of $1,000. Donor will receive a charitable tax receipt for $750 and also the GTB undertakes to perform a Pushpanjali every year on the birth day of the donor and his/her spouse for life.
Donations can be a single payment (cash, cheque or credit card) or in ten instalments with post dated cheques. The medallion will be delivered to you upon full payment or payment of the final instalment. Donors from the U.S can avail of special arrangements to receive charitable donation receipts that are acceptable to IRS. Please contact the GTB directly for details.
Please contact the temple for more details. Cheques should be made payable to Guruvayurappan Temple of Brampton. The blessed (sanctified) Medallion can be personally collected from our Thirumeni or it can be mailed. Please allow four to six weeks for delivery.

Book Udayasthamana Pooja
The Udaya Asthamana Pooja is supposed to be the most coveted and dearest of all poojas and is the most popular offering involving special poojas and vilakku (illuminations).
‘Udaya Asthamana’ literally means from sunrise to sunset. Hence it implies worship from sunrise to sunset. Normally there are three Poojas in a day – Usha pooja, Ucha pooja and Athazha pooja. When an Udaya Asthamana pooja is done in any temple there are 18 Poojas. But at Guruvayur there are 21 Poojas, and that is what we plan to do here.
