Day visits

A day visit to Skanda Vale offers you the chance to have Darshan in our temples, but please be sure to plan your day visit around our temple opening times.

What to Expect

Darshan means to have sight of the Divinity embodied in our sacred temple Murthis (icons). Share your prayers, gratitude, offerings and love in Darshan and leave feeling refreshed and uplifted.

Book A Day Pilgrimage

It’s free of charge, but booking is essential.

Booking guarantees that you will have darshan during the times that the temples are open. It does not guarantee that you will have a seat inside the temple during the puja, as this is dependent on the number of visitors we have at any one time. 

Short Overnight Stays

For shorter stays, Skanda Hafan Guesthouse offers individual apartments, a 16-bed bunkhouse designed for large groups of pilgrims, and a 4-bedroom farmhouse, located just a few miles from the temple.
