The Mahakali temple at Pavagadh will remain closed for visitors during Navratri festival. The temple will be closed form Oct.16 to Nov.1. There will be online darshan.
The temple trust took the decision owing to covid-19 pandemic. Thousands of people throng the temple during Navratri and it would be difficult to maintain social distancing, a temple trustee said.
Last weekend heavy rush was witnessed at the temple when hundreds of people were seen jostling with each other without wearing masks. This situation was alarming and we decided to close the temple for festival, one of the trustees said.
