Margao: The famous Dindi festival of Shree Vithal mandir, Margao, got underway on Sunday on a subdued note owing to the pandemic.
As all public events have been cancelled, temple sources said that the main event of the festival, to be observed on November 28, will have no palanquin procession. This is the 111th year of the festival.
The dindi with the palanquin of Shree Vithal Rakhumayee takes off from Shree Hari Mandir, Pajifond, on the penultimate day of the festival, and after paying the customary visit to Shree Damodar Sal well past midnight, culminates at Shree Vithal mandir at Comba in the pre-dawn hours and returns to Shree Hari mandir by noon the following day.
The activities at the temple during the eight-day long festival will be limited to religious rituals and entry will be restricted to temple committee members, president of the temple committee Suhas Kamat said.
Kamat said arrangements have been made to allow devotees to take darshan with Covid-19 restrictions .
