Since the commencement of Navratri at Vindhyachal Dham in Uttar Pradesh, there is a continuous rush of devotees. Looking at the Corona period, the district administration had made many claims under the Kovid Guidelines. But the crowd of devotees seen since morning was different. Neither were people engaged in line under social distancing, nor were most of the people wearing masks while the corona infection has not subsided yet.
In the Navaratri fair that started in Vindhyachal Dham, every year, millions of people visit Ma Vindhyavasini to worship and worship and some people stop here and do spiritual practice throughout Navratri. But due to the Corona period, the crowd of devotees was seen less than usual.
This year, the district administration claimed that devotees coming to the Dham in Navaratri under the Kovid rules were allowed to enter the temple only after darshan of the mother, social distancing and applying masks. But the view in the dham since morning was completely different from the administration’s claim.
Long queues of devotees started in the temple to see the mother.
