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.
Making the most of Darshan
Many of our pilgrims travel hundreds of miles for just a few brief moments of Darshan. It can be a powerful experience. To be sure you are prepared, please read our Pilgrim’s Guide before you come.
After Darshan, we recommend you take some quiet moments to reflect and absorb the experience internally. You are then very welcome to help with some simple Seva tasks, or spend time appreciating the Sacred Sites of Skanda Vale.

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.
