As Many As 50,000 Devotees Visited Kukke Temple on Sunday Which is Highest After Covid Outbreak

As many as 50,000 devotees visited the Kukke Subrahmanya temple, on June 5, Sunday as the day was considered auspicious. This is said to be the highest footfall after covid. Before Covid, the temple used to see well over 1 lakh devotees on some big festival days in a year. Nearly 1km queue of devotees was seen from the KSRTC bus terminal to the temple entrance. Nearly 2,300 devotees offered Ashlesha Bali pooja and about 45,000 received anna prasada.

The devotees were seen in more numbers because Shashti and Ashlesha nakshatras coincided on Sunday and the weekend added to the rush at the temple. Also it is an important day for the temple as all the festival rituals end with the main deity being taken inside the sanctorum after pallakki utsava and bandi utsava.As Many As
