After 56 days due to lockdown and curfew, the doors of the historic Mata Shri Bhadrakali temple opened on Monday morning. During this time, the temple was flooded with devotees. This temple is about 900 years old.
Devotees who arrived to attend the fair of Mother Bhadrakali forgot the fear of corona virus. The social distancing took off. Women, elderly and children were also included in the crowd of devotees inside and outside the temple but most of them were not wearing masks.

Though the temple committee made elaborate arrangements for the devotees, but due to the crowd, the arrangements proved insufficient. The temple has thousands of devotees every year, but this time due to the Corona crisis, the temple committee appealed to the devotees. Deputy Commissioner Shivdular Singh Dhillon says that a notice will be sent to the temple managers regarding how such a large number of devotees reached the temple.
