COVID Update:

In this time of COVID (2/21) Arillas and Corfu is currently one of the most COVID safe places to be, with very few cases. We ask for your support to keep it that way. Please come COVID free and keep respectful distances. Here at the Gayatri Mandir we do our best to provide a sacred space where all who come feel cared for and respected. Please come in that same spirit. We welcome your support and suggestions to maintain this space during our challenging time. For more local information; https://enimerosi.com/en

PRACTICAL CONSIDERATIONS 

Cushions will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own for added comfort.  Chairs will be available for those who need them.

Drinking water will be provided at the Gayatri Mandir (bring your own personal water bottles to refill).

Mosquito Repellent: The Gayatri Mandir is open air in the olive groves. Please bring whatever mosquito repellent that best suits your needs.

This is a non-secured area so please do not bring valuables to the Mandir.

Please do not bring pets or animals to the Gayatri Mandir.

Please note: There will be no refund if sessions have to be cancelled due to rain.  The beauty of the Gayatri Mandir is that it is an outdoor temple, so we are close to the elements and the beauty of Mother Nature. Please don’t be concerned – Corfu in July and August is almost always dry, sunny and absolutely beautiful.

GETTING TO THE GAYATRI MANDIR

The Gayatri Mandir is an easy walk to/from the beach, the local restaurants and the many hotels in the Arillas area.
