Coronavirus: ISKCON shrines in Bengaluru to stay shut

The International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) temples at Rajajinagar and Kanakapura Road in Bengaluru would stay closed from early Wednesday morning until in addition notice.

The measure has been taken in view of Covid-19 outbreak in components of India, an ISKCON announcement said.

"However, temple worship and normal temple 'sevas' to the deities will proceed to be performed privately with the aid of the resident clergymen of the temple," it said.

"In addition, resident devotees will proceed to function bhajans and kirtans in the temple for the welfare of the world," the announcement added.

Pre-booked one-of-a-kind pujas and sevas will proceed with a small quantity of participants.

Participation in these pujas will be by way of invitation only, it used to be stated.

"By taking these measures, we count on that traffic to the temple will minimize by using ninety eight per cent," ISKCON said.
