The reports are coming straight from the Kerala where the sources close to the Sabarimala Temple have said that the temple will open again. As you might already know that the Government has decided the ‘Unlock 1’ in which temples are open with some new rules. We can simply say that the Kerala government has made it obvious that they follow the rules of “Unlock” and that they will open the temples including the Sabarimala Temple.
Sources are saying that the Travancore Devaswom Board President N Vasu himself said, “We discussed with both ‘tantris’ of the temple. With their consultation and cooperation, we decided this. As of now, we’re going ahead with monthly puja, and the temple festival is scheduled from June 19.” Also, the reports are coming that the people who have registered their names through the online system would be able to enter the Sannidhanam.
The reports are coming that the Vasu even added, “People from other states, at the time of registration, should upload a certificate that they’ve tested negative for COVID-19. The certificate should be obtained from an ICMR approved lab.” Also, the reports are coming that the Temple authority is ready to follow all the rules they can so they won’t spread the COVID-19.
You must know that Vasu himself has confirmed that The Arat ceremony will be conducted on June 20 at Pampa river and for that every year a lot of people come forward. The sources are saying that the shopping malls, restaurants, and places of worship will be open for the people but with some certain rules.
If we talk about the state Kerala then we can say that various temples including the famous Lord Krishna temple at Guruvayoor will open and a few churches and mosques will open in the state for the devotees. Well, we are waiting for confirmation from the Temple about the whole process. The Guruvayur shrine opened at 9.30 AM and around 150 people will be able to enter in the whole day.
