The crowd at Shri Varadaraja Perumal temple in Kanchi is increasing in a rapid manner as the people are constantly visiting there for Athi Varadar Darshan.
According to the estimation of temple authorities, in a period of almost 20 days, approx 34 lakhs pilgrims have visited the temple. The event is going to last for 12 more days and will come to an end on the 17th of August 2019.
It is expected that the rush is going to increase further as the idol can now be seen in a standing position which has grabbed more attention of people for the last 5 days.
With the increase in the number of people every day, it is becoming more difficult to take the Lord’s darshan due to the availability of the limited number of donor passes.
