‘Aksharabhyasa’, which used to be held on Vijaya Dashami day too has been canceled in Kateel Durgaparameshwari temple. The temple also stated that devotees cannot have the Darshan of the Goddess between 3 and 5 pm every day during the Navaratri festival as the idol of the goddess has to be decorated in a special way.

Meanwhile, ‘Shesha Vastra’, clothes which were once used to adorn the deity, to women devotees on Lalita Panchami day has been canceled due to coronavirus concerns.
