Karnataka Muzrai Minister Kota Srinivas Poojari said that poojas conducted at temples across the state would soon go online for devotees as temples cannot be opened till lockdown ends.

Poojary said, "Devotees from different places in the state are requesting the opening of the temples which are shut due to lockdown. But for the safety of the people and as per the guidelines temples will not be opened till lockdown ends."

Poojary further said that for the benefit of people, the government is planning to conduct online pooja.

"Devotees can perform pooja and other rituals online. It is not the first time that the online pooja facility is being performed. This method was started in many temples including Kollur Mookambika temple, Chamundeshwari temple and other temples in Karnataka," Poojary said.
