The Maha kumbhabhishekam is another 18 months away. The temple management has got the team in place to start on the repairs, restoration work, ashtabandhanam for moola vigrahas, abharanas, and souvenir. A team of shilpis will be brought from India to repair portions of the architectural work that are damaged from exposure to severe climate changes. During the Maha kumbhabhishekam, the shilpis will build the yagashalas and re-install the vigrahas with new ashtabandhana (bonding cement). The temple and the other structures will be washed, water-proofed and repainted. The shrines, where none other than the temple priests can normally enter, will be available for cleaning - many devotees will be lining up to get an opportunity to clean the shrines. Senior priests will be brought from India and from other temples in the United States to perform the religious ceremonies of the Maha kumbhabhishekam.
