The Hassan district administration has accomplished preparations for the 12-day Hasanamba Jatra Mahotsava starting on November 5.
Deputy Commissioner R. Girish and different officers inspected the preparations on Monday night.
The competition attracts lakhs of devotees yearly. Hasanamba temple is opened solely throughout this competition. However, this yr, devotees won’t be allowed to enter the temple as a result of COVID-19 pandemic.
Mr. Girish mentioned the district administration would set up LED screens close to the temple in order that the devotees may watch the programmes being held contained in the temple stay. “It is difficult to allow devotees inside the temple, as a gathering of a large people at one place could cause the fear of COVID-19 spread.”
The clergymen and officers will go to the temple to make sure the spiritual programmes are held. Elected representatives and different necessary individuals could be allowed to go to the temple on the first and final days of the competition, he mentioned.
Superintendent of Police R. Srinivasa Gowda, Additional SP BN Nandini, Assistant Commissioner BA Jagadish and others accompanied the DC in the course of the inspection.
