The Andhra Pradesh government has temporarily suspended the darshan of goddess Kanaka Durga atop the Indrakeeladri shrine from this evening as a preventive measure to stop the spread of COVID-19.

The temple is situated atop the Indrakeeladri hill, on the banks of the Krishna river.

The government took the decision upon the advice of the temple board following an increase in the number of COVID-19 cases in the country.

Speaking to the media on Friday, the temple Chairman Somi Naidu said that the daily rituals in the temple would be performed by the priests as usual, but that the devotees would not be allowed to enter the temple.

He appealed to the pilgrims to cooperate with the decision of the government.

Naidu also said that vehicles would not be allowed on the ghat road leading to the temple.

The closure will be until March 31.

The Tirumala temple of Lord Venkateswara has already been closed for devotees.
