Finally, in what comes as good news to devotees, the Chilkur Balaji temple’s management has decided to allow them to do pradakshinas or circumambulations (moving around the main deity in a temple as a mark of respect) from henceforth.


The temple had stopped pradakshinas within the temple premises about one and half years back in March 2020 due to a surge in COVID cases. Since then, the devotees have been requesting the temple management to allow circumambulations. However, the management stuck to its decision as it did not want to facilitate any new cases.


Now, with a dip in the number of COVID cases, the temple authorities have decided to allow the devotees to do pradakshinas around the temple. The devotees will still not be allowed on the walking ramp closer to the sanctum sanctorum. Instead, they can make pradakshinas outside the temple wall.


According to temple chief priest CS Rangarajan, “As the present situation is not conducive for permitting the devotees to do circumambulations inside the temple complex, we have decided to allow them to do pradakshina outside the temple walls.


The chief priest shared that since the educational institutions were reopened, several students requested them to allow them to do pradakshinas. He says that the temple management made a decision to fulfill their wish.
