Panaji, Jul 28: After the Bodgeshwar temple in Mapusa was shut due to incessant rain last week, it has been reopened for devotees. Previously, the temple was shut for over two months due to the second wave of the Covid pandemic.
Pankaj Gaonkar, caretaker of the temple, said devotees can enter the premises. Precautionary measures are taken care of at the temple premises. The temple administration has been implementing Covid appropriate behaviour in the premises. The management has barricaded the entrance to avoid crowding. Devotees are asked to wear masks and maintain social distancing in the temple premises.
"Bodgeshwar is the protector of Mapusa as well as of the whole state. We hope and pray to Lord Bodgeshwar temple to end the pandemic," Gaonkar said.
