Indore | Nearly eleven weeks after the famous Mahakaleshwar temple in Ujjain city of Madhya Pradesh was shut due to the coronavirus outbreak, its doors will be reopened for devotees from Monday. However, those who wish to visit the temple will have to register their names first.

The temple is one of the 12 "jyotirlingas" in the country and attracts lakhs of devotees every year. The reopening of the temple is part of the easing of lockdown restrictions in the State.

"The temple will be kept open between 8 am and 6 pm as per the central guidelines," temple management committee's administrator Sujan Rawat told. "We are going to launch a mobile application and set up a toll-free number for the devotees to book an appointment to enter in the shrine," he added..

"However, the devotees will not be allowed to attend the 'bhasma aarti' ritual or enter the sanctum sanctorum. Besides that, no one will be allowed to touch the idols and scriptures, sprinkle or distribute holy water or offer prasad," he said
