Kukke Subrahmanya Temple cancels ‘Ede snana’ owing to Covid

Mangaluru: The Kukke Subrahmanya Temple in Dakshina Kannada District has decided not to hold ‘ede snana’, a ritual in which devotees roll over the prasadam offered to the presiding deity, this year as well due to Covid – 19 restrictions and the detection of the Omicron variant in the State.

At the three-day celebration in 2019, more than 800 devotees offered ‘ede snana.’

Due to the lockdown, the Kukke temple, which has the highest revenue collection in Karnataka, has been closed to devotees since April 21. Thereafter, on July 5, devotees were allowed to enter with certain restrictions. The temple only permitted people to enter for darshan and mangalaarati seva, as per the unlock guidelines. Later, all sevas were permitted, but under certain restrictions.
