Bengaluru: The International Society for Krishna Consciousness temples at Rajajinagar and Kanakapura Road here would remain closed from the early morning of Wednesday till further notice. The measure has been taken in view of COVID-19 outbreak in parts of India, an ISKCON statement said. "However, the temple worship and traditional temple 'sevas' to the deities will continue to be conducted privately by the resident priests of the temple," it said. "In addition, resident devotees will continue to perform bhajans and kirtans in the temple for the welfare of the world," the statement added. Pre-booked special pujas and sevas will continue with a small number of participants. Participation in these pujas will be by invitation only, it was stated. "By taking these measures, we expect that visitors to the temple will reduce by 98 per cent," ISKCON said.
