Dear friends of Amaravati,
Due to an outbreak of COVID-19 at the monastery, with three residents testing positive, and the fast rising numbers of cases in the UK, we have taken the difficult decision of closing the monastery to visitors from the 1st of January until further notice. It is still uncertain when we will reopen, but we hope sometime in early January; a further announcement will be posted on this website. The back gate remains open as usual for those who wish to bring offerings in the morning.
With best wishes for the new year,
The community at Amaravati
