Sabarimala Temple opened:
Explain that the temple has been opened at a time when curfew is being imposed once again due to increasing cases in many states of the country. In such a situation the opening of the temple is a matter of concern. In a day, 25 thousand to 35 thousand cases are being registered in the country.
Please tell that orders were given to close the Sabarimala temple due to Corona pandemic in the country. Meanwhile, in the month of December also, the gates of the Sabarimala temple were opened several times for the devotees. During this period, the number of devotees to enter the temple was increased rather than reduced. The High Court had ordered that 5000 people would be allowed to enter the temple every day. The pilgrims were said to be required to carry the negative report of the RT-PCR test to see it from 26 December.
The temple opened before December 16 with strict protocol from 16 November. During that time the temple was closed for seven months due to the epidemic. Earlier, the famous Sabarimala temple in Kerala was opened for the annual Manjal Makarvilakku pilgrimage to facilitate devotees to visit, but after the temple opened, there were cases of Covid-19 infection involving devotees, employees and others.
