Kolkata: Kalighat temple to reopen on July 1 | Kolkata News

KOLKATA: Visits to Kalighat temple will restart on July 1 but no one will be allowed to enter the ‘garba griha’ or the sanctum sanctorum. For the time being, devotees will have to be satisfied with darshan and pranaam from the dol-mancha, outside the garba griha. This was decided at a meeting of the temple committee on Saturday evening.
A slew of other restrictions have been brought in by the committee, keeping in view the space constraint inside the temple. According to the new SOP framed on Saturday, only 10 devotees will be allowed on the temple premises at a time. They will have to enter via Gate number 2 and exit via Gate 4. The timings have been revised from 6am to noon and from 4pm to 7pm.
Police protection has been sought from Kalighat police station. They will help manage the queue outside the temple.
“We shall not allow any prasad offerings/exchange, sindoor tika, flowers or charanamrit in the temple,” said committee vice-president Bidyut Haldar.
