SOPs not followed at temples in Kangra district

Palampur, August 7

The state government has opened its temples for public but Covid-19 protocols are not being followed by pilgrims in Kangra district. Most of the devotees visiting temples do not wear masks or maintain social distancing.

The state Cabinet had decided to open all religious places last month, with strict safety guidelines in place. Bajreshwari Temple, one of the 52 Shakti Peeths, in Kangra district is overcrowded with devotees these days. Devotees are coming here from Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana and Delhi in large numbers.

In other temples like Jwalamukhi, Chamunda, Baglamukhi and Chintpurni too, the situation is similar. There is no social distancing and there is nobody to keep a check on the implementation of Covid guidelines.

The number of Covid positive cases is increasing every day in the district. — OC
