Volunteers Needed

Sankat Mochan Hanuman Temple depends on a dedicated team of volunteers to serve the many devotees who wish to visit. We are seeking volunteers who are available to serve at least 4 hours once a month. The opportunities to serve range from helping with greeting, checking in guests, parking, and duties at the Temple, including distributing prasad, serving chai, cleaning, singing, participating in Arati, etc. If you are interested, please email the Temple - temple@mountmadonna.org or talk to Temple staff the next time you visit. You may also fill out the following volunteer form and the Volunteer Coordinator will contact you:


Guidelines for visiting the Temple

Mount Madonna Center (MMC) is committed to equitable access to our grounds and offerings. To help us support transformative experiences for all of our visitors, MMC relies on a reservation system. This ensures that we have the necessary staffing in place to care for all. MMC’s current universal reservation requirements also ensure the safety and tranquility of the mountain experience for all students, visitors, and residents.

Visitors who come for Temple Darshan are welcome to enjoy the Temple grounds, prayers and darshan with Hanuman and Arati at 6pm, as well as visit OM park, an area with a fountain above the parking and lake. Temple Darshan visitors are also invited to enjoy Anjaneya’s World Café and Oceanview Bookstore.

Reservations are required for all visits to Mount Madonna Center and the Temple. In addition to Temple Darshan, there are several other Pathways to Visit MMC.

Please do not come to the Temple or Mount Madonna Center without first securing a reservation. We are unable to accommodate walk-in guests or people who arrive without a reservation.
