Welcome to Sri Siva Satyanārāyana Swāmi Temple!
You have reached the Website of Canada’s newest Temple - Sri Siva Satya Nārāyanaswāmi Temple,
located in the beautiful city of Mississauga in Ontario! The Kumbabhishekam of the Temple took
place, in a consecration ceremony lasting for five days, on November 29, 2009, with the blessings of Pujya Sri Ravi Shankar, followed by 42 days of Mandala Pujā.
The temple is consecrated with the Murthis of
Sri Saundra Nāyaki samédha Sri Kailāsanāthar (Sri Sivā), Sri Lakshmiramā (Sri Mahā Lakshmi) samédha Sri
Satyanārāyana Swāmi, Sri Ganesā, Sri Muruga, Ashta Bhuja (8-handed) Sri Durgā, Sri Guruvayurappan, Sri
Anjaneyā, Sri Kāla Bhairavar and Navagrahās. All the Vigrahams installed in the
temple are very exquisitely carved . Please see the Deities page for additional information.
The unique feature of the temple is the self-contained 'Vision of Vedās'
teaching school for those keen on learning Sāstrā and
Vedās. Sri Chandrasekara Gurukkal, the founder of the temple, is an accomplished Vedic scholar,
Priest and Teacher who has created a number of Vedic students in the GTA over the past several years.
While there are plenty of temples in Toronto, there are no learning centres where one can learn Vedic recitation, rituals and Sastrās. The Canada Siva Satyanārāyana
Swāmi Temple fills this void, and "Vision of Vedās" school is being created with the aim of teaching Sastras. We invite you to experience the
ancient teaching tradition of India that has been in vogue for thousands of years. The
speciality of the temple is that it caters to the needs of every segment
of worshippers - like Saivam (worship of Siva), Vaishnavam (worship of
Vishnu), Sowram (worship of Sun), Ganapathyam (worship of Ganesa) and
Sāktham (worship of Sakthi).
We hope to present, through these Web pages, as much detail as
possible about the temple and the Deities consecrated therein, daily Pujā
schedules as well as happenings of important events through photographs.
You will be able to plan your next visit as well as send E-mails to the
temple with your questions or suggestions.

Temple Accredited as a Charitable Institution
Sri Siva Hindu temple also known as “Canada Sri Siva Sathyanarayana Swami temple” was incorporated as a ‘not for profit’
Ontario corporation in 2009. An application to obtain ‘charitable’ status was submitted around the same time and CRA recently
confirmed the status to our temple effective Jan 2011. (Registered Charity 8230 15227 RR 0001). The temple premises was initially leased
for the first year and subsequently purchased via a private mortgage
arrangement. Money collected towards various ritual offerings and donations help with the running of the temple to meet with the operational expenses.
As you may be aware, it is a significant commitment to repay the mortgage amount. In order to repay the mortgage amount, the Temple solicits your continued
support and patronage. The Temple has come up with the “Bhoomi Dhanam” project for the temple area of 4697 Sq.ft with each square feet costing $125.
The Temple is a vital part of our community that enriches our lives culturally, religiously and helps impart values in our children. The
Temple offers us a platform to conduct our regular prayers on auspicious days besides
providing an ability to participate in periodic religious discourses and other
spiritual programs. You have played a vital part in making this possible for the temple management until today.
We earnestly request you to come forward again in large numbers to make this ‘Bhoomi Dhanam” project successful that will help meet the mortgage obligations
of the temple. Your donations are tax deductible.
The Temple is committed to issuing receipts for all donations that you can present when filing your income tax returns.
