Funeral Home or Prayer Hall Pooja followed by cremation at the crematory you select. – $2,795.00
The pooja and visiting takes place at The Hindu Funeral Home, not at a crematory. Then we proceed to Franklin Park Crematory, 5 minutes away, where you start the cremation. Ideal if Franklin does not have a time available to do the popoja there.
This Package is identical to the Crematory Pooja Package, except that the pooja takes place at our Funeral Home or a prayer hall, than we go to the crematory you select. It appears to be more expensive than the “Crematory Pooja” because you pay a facility charge to us, not the crematory. The price for the “Crematory Pooja” above does not reflect their facility charge which can only be determined when we know what crematory you wish to use. Included is our specially designed solid wood casket rental. You do not need to purchase a casket unless desired. The solid wood rental provided is $495 if purchased separately.
