No ringing of bells in UP temples now, jalabhishek through pipes
Devotees will not be allowed to ring bells when they enter the temples and there will be no community feasts either. People, however, can bring their own bells and ring it inside the temples.
Entry into the reliious places will be permitted only for those who wear masks. Priests will wear gloves and the norm of social distancing will have to be maintained.
Mahant Diya Giri of the famous Mankameshwar temple said, "The 'Jalabhishek' will now be held through a pipe so that devotees can perform the ritual without entering he sanctum sanctorum of the temple which is rather small."
