Mysore/Mysuru: Due to Mahalaya Amavasya on Sept. 17, the Chamundeshwari Temple atop Chamudi Hill will remain closed for devotees on that date. Similarly, the famous Srikanteshwara Temple in Nanjangud town will also be shut for devotees on Sept. 17.

M.M. Hills Temple closed for three days from Sept. 16

With devotees likely to throng M.M. Hills Temple for Mahalaya Amavasya, Chamarajanagar Deputy Commissioner Dr. M.R. Ravi has ordered closure of the Hill Temple in Hanur taluk of the district for three days from  Sept. 16 to 18 as a COVID-19 precautionary measure.

The DC said that the Temple would be closed as it would be very difficult to maintain COVID-19 safety measures  with devotees likely to flock the Hill Temple in big numbers for Mahalaya Amavasya, during which special pujas will be performed to the deity.
