Shabarmala sees minimum devotees in this Makara Sankranti
In the month of January, Shabarimala usually saw lakhs of devotees. However, this year only about 1000 devotees have visited so far. Karnataka pilgrims are facing errors in the online booking system. Covid-19 pandemic and policies of govt of Kerala are deterring Karnataka devotees to go to Shabarimala. Many Ayyappa Swamy devotees in Karnataka are organizing poojas and bhajans in their places on Makara Sankranti.
