PTI
In Uttar Pradesh, Online Darshan Facility for devotees have started in the famous Kashi Vishwanath temple at Varanasi. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath inaugurated the service yesterday. Religious places in the state have reopened yesterday along with the rest of the country, however, many districts including Kanpur and Varanasi will have to wait to see reopening of worshiping places. People are also not very enthusiastic to visit religious places because of the fear of the spread of Coronavirus.

Devotees from all across the globe can now do Darshan of Famous Kashi Vishwanath temple online also. After taking a glimpse of the sanctum sanctorum of the world famous temple from a distance, Chief Minister of state Yogi Adityanath yesterday inaugurated the facility of Online Darshan in Kashi Vishwanath Temple. This facility will also provide devotees the opportunity to perform other rituals like Rudrabhishek and Mahamrityunjay Jap. The Chief Minister later took stock of the progress of Kashi Vishwanath corridor which is a dream project of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Varanasi is in the list of those cities where religious places have not opened yet and administration has them to complete the necessary arrangements first and they can only be opened after inspection of the concerned authorities. Although Religious places including mosques, churches, and Jain temples have also opened across the state yesterday and even Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath also performed pooja at Gorakshnath temple in Gorakhpur but people are still reluctant to visit these places because of the fear of corona.
