Kerala's Sree Padmanabhaswamy temple shut after chief priest and 10 others test positive

One of the richest shrines of the country Sree Padmanabhaswamy temple in Thiruvananthapuram has been shut for devotees till October 15 after chief priest of the temple and 10 others tested positive for Covid-19. All regular rituals will be performed by the priests without devotees during this period and authorities are hopeful of reopening the temple on October 16. The decision to close the temple for devotees was also taken in view of the 10-day Alpashi festival scheduled from October 15 at the temple. The festival is likely to be held symbolically and the chief priest will take a final call on the matter.This is the second closure of the shrine since its shutdown following the nationwide lockdown in March and reopening for devotees on August 26.
