Ranchi: The Ranchi district administration has decided to provide online darshan of Pahadi Baba during the auspicious month of Shravan but the doors of the temple would remain closed for the devotees due to Coronavirus.
A decision in this regard was taken in the meeting chaired by Sadar SDO Lokesh Mishra in which members of the temple management committee were also present.
In the meeting, it was decided that no ritual would be organised in the temple during the Shravan Month. It was decided that apart from the priests no one else would be allowed in the temple.
The priests would be performing all the rituals as per the earlier customs but online darshan facilities would be available for the people who want to pay their obeisance to Lord Shiva.
The Pahadi Mandir located in the heart of the city is a huge draw among the devotees during the month of Shravan with people from neighbouring districts also turning up in huge numbers to pay Jala-abhishek to Lord Shiva.
