Sabarimala: The famous Lord Ayyappa temple here opened on Sunday, August 16 on the eve of the monthly five- day poojas for the Malayalam month of Chingam but the bar on devotees entry will continue as per COVID-19 health protocol.

“The temple will remain open till August 21 and only the usual rituals will be conducted,” the Travancore Devaswom Board (TDB), which manages the hill shrine, said.

However, devotees will not be allowed in view of the COVID-19 pandemic. The TDB, in a release, also said the temple will again open for Onam poojas from August 29 to September 2.

The board has already said that the devotees to the shrine will have to carry COVID-19 negative certificates for darshan, when the temple opens for the over two-month-long pilgrim season from November 16.
