This year devotees will be allowed to enter the premises of Pashupatinath temple only via three outer routes during the Mahashivaratri festival on Thursday.

At a press conference organised by the Pashupati Area Development Trust (PADT) in Kathmandu on Tuesday, it was shared that one queue will be from Rudragadeshwor northern gate via Mitrapark-Gaurighat, Umakunda-Dakshiunmurti and two lines from southern gate via Battisputali-Gaushala, Tribhuvan international Airport-Tilganga, Pingalasthan-Sumargabhawan and Charshivalaya-Panchadeval to enter the temple premises.

Another queue has been arranged to enter the main temple via Bankali steep way in the western direction, member-secretary of PADT Pradeep Dhakal informed.

Additional queue could also be arranged towards Tilganga Ram Temple as per the need.

Three each interior lines have been arranged from the northern and southern sides while there will be four lines from the western front after entering the main temple premises.

Only around 800,000 revellers have been estimated to offer prayers at the Pashupatinath temple this year due to fear of coronavirus pandemic.
