  • Hi,

    We want to book arati tickets online. However, since we will be travelling, dont know, what time we should be present in the temple premises to queue up for arati.
    For eg, if we book dhoop arati, which is performed 4.30pm to 5.30pm (as per online booking), what time we should report to the temple premises (30mins before or 1hr before or earlier than that)??

    • Dear Rajeeb,

      For Dhoop Arati, it advisable to reach 45 minutes before the start. Generally, Dhoop Arati is performed 20 minutes before sunset. Nowadays, sunset timings are 6:30 PM so please make it between 5 pm to 5:15 pm.

      Do let us know if you need to know more.


      • Hi amitabh,

        Thanks for the reply. Sorry, forgot to mention, we will be visiting in Nov (mostly winter I suppose) may be sunset would be much earlier. So, may be its better to be there by 4;30pm?
        Besides, the booking slot is 4.30 to 5.30pm in the online booking. So, its it like we must be present 45mins before 4.30pm?
        Sorry, for my confusion, but it should not happen like we reach at 5 (because sunset is at 6:30pm) and we are not allowed inside.

  • Sir,
