Sabarimala facing severe water crunch

TPURAM: The famous hill shrine of Sabarimala is facing severe water scarcity, forcing temple authorities to put in place certain restrictions in allotting accommodation to pilgrims visiting the Lord Ayyappa temple during the summer season.

The Travancore Deveaswom Board (TDB) Sunday made an appeal to pilgrims coming for the monthly poojas to return home after offering darshan, instead of camping at the Sannidhanam atop the hillock, a TDB press release said here Sunday.

The temple management is compelled to enforce these restrictions in view of the seriousness of the situation and devotees are expected to co-operate with them, the release added.
