Hi Vesela, thank you for your inquiry. I've checked with our host, and I'm pleased to inform you that it's possible to schedule the purification ceremony tomorrow around 2:00-3:00 pm. If you have any further questions or if there's anything else I can assist you with, please email us at :)
Hi, this sounds very intriguing, I am just curious as to how long the ceremony takes so that I can plan around it accordingly. Kind regards Shilo

Hi Shilo, thank you for your interest! The ceremony typically lasts for about 3 hours. I hope this helps :)
Hi there! I would absolutely love to do the purification ceremony with you on Tuesday. But the problem is, that ot’s difficult to do it this early in the morning. Is there a possibility to do it later or in the afternoon? Thank you so much and warm regards, Anja
Anja, 29 Oct 2023
Hi Anja, It is possible to start later than 8.00 AM , for example at 10.00AM But please be note that starting later than 8AM, the temple will get busy. It is a lot better to experience the Melukat Ceremony early, starting at 8.00 AM
Can I book a little later than 8am? I’m doing a yoga training and my practice ends at 9:30. I would be able to arrive at the temple at 10am.
