Those wishing to offer prayers have to book for darshan online through the temple website www.spst.in, a day ahead of their visit to the shrine and keep a copy of the same and carry their original Aadhar card along with them during the temple visit.

A counter has been set up at the North gate from where the devotees have to enter and they have to enter their details in a register, the sources said.

Pilgrims were allowed to enter through spot bookings also after verification of their aadhar cards. Only 35 devotees would be allowed inside the shrine at each point of time with a maximum of 665 visitors a day.
