As the head priest, Prabhakara has developed the full range of services which the temple offers to the devotees. Prabhakara brings with him the wealth of knowledge and experience he has accumulated visiting various religious places around the world and by conducting hundreds of services both at the temple and all over Scotland and the North of England.

Dr Bhatt very diligently carried the responsibilities of Hindu Chaplain at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. He has been an invitational speaker at The Glasgow Cathedral. Prabhakara is very open and welcoming to people of all faiths and no faith.
