MANGALURU, INDIA, June 1, 2020 (Times of India): The temples of the Muzrai department in Karnataka suffered nearly $ 79.5 million in revenue during the pandemic curfew, Muzrai minister Kota Srinivas Poojary said on Monday. He spoke to reporters here and said that the Kollur Sri Mookambika temple alone lost at least $ 1.854 million in sales in April and May. Around 300 A and B class temples under the Muzrai (Hindu religious and charitable foundations) division in the state lost around 35 percent of their annual income, he said.
The state government previously allowed temples to reopen on Monday, but later postponed them to June 8 to comply with the centre’s new instructions. The minister said the government’s Saptapadi mass marriage program in temples, which was postponed due to the ban, would be conducted in accordance with the new government guidelines. Prime Minister B.S. Yediyurappa has given permission to hold the program. Poojary, district of Dakshina Kannada, said that before the monsoon, all precautions were taken to protect life and property in the district in the face of a heavy rain forecast.
