Many devotees have enquired about avenues of contributing towards certain aspects of the poojaa e.g obayams, food, flowers, prayer materials, hiring of tents, etc.  At Shree Ayyappaa Kshetram we have never insisted on an amount for your participation and contribution to the temple. However some devotees prefer the temple suggesting an amount. If a devotee,a family or group of families wish to do an Obayam, an amount of R1008 is suggested but is not mandatory. Please contact either Raj or Ben on the cell numbers below should you have any queries about donations or performing an  Obayam and the day you would like to do an obayam. The requested date to perform the Obayam cannot be guaranteed but we will try to accommodate your request.
