At Sri Karaneeswarar Temple, Mylapore, daily rituals for the deity will keep happening, says the chief priest, T. V. Shanmuga Gurukal.
“We have been opening the temple about a hour later than the regular timing every morning and we close early too. The vendors who supply milk and flowers have been doing so for a long time and they continue to do so now too. The rituals of naivedyam and aradhanai will go on. Only staff are allowed to enter the temple”, he says.
In the absence of devotees, our donations have reduced, he adds.
