He said that the temple was reopened for darshan amidst Coronavirus epidemic, after which initially around 6,000 devotees were coming daily, but now their number has increased to 15,000. The crowd is increasing during public holidays.
He said, ‘The temple can now allow a maximum of 12,000 devotees to come daily following the guidelines of Kovid-19. During darshan, more emphasis will be laid on keeping distance from each other among the devotees. So devotees should now come only after prior booking and for that a darshan pass is available online.
He said that children below 10 years of age and those above 65 years of age should not come to visit during this epidemic.
