Due to the ban on Narmada Snan on January 14 and 15 in view of the possible rush of devotees on Makar Sankranti in the pilgrimage town, many devotees were turned back from 4 km away. On the other hand, despite this, five thousand such devotees were given entry in the pilgrimage city, who had not even booked.

According to the temple institute, on January 14, only 4 people had made online booking for darshan on Sankranti. Then where did so many people come from? Whereas the pilgrims coming from outside were being returned by putting up barricades at the entrance of the pilgrimage city since morning. Many devotees reached the pilgrimage town, but were disappointed as they returned without taking a bath and having darshan. However, there was silence in almost all the ghats of the pilgrimage town. Only a few devotees were seen taking a bath there. Such silence was not seen here even in 2020 and 21 during the Corona period.

The police had started checking at the entrance of the shrine from Friday morning itself. Outside devotees were not allowed here. Due to this, some devotees parked their vehicles near the checking point and traveled four km on foot and reached to have darshan. On the other hand, some private drivers of the pilgrimage city took advantage of this and they left near the temple after taking double the money from such passengers.

Here, late in the evening, a bus from Maharashtra reached Omkareshwar carrying passengers, while these people had not booked online. According to sources, he entered the pilgrimage city by paying three thousand rupees and also had darshan. By the end of the night, the number of such devotees reached beyond five thousand, who visited without booking, whereas for this day only four devotees had made online booking for darshan.

Only four people had online booking, who reached between 6 am and 9 pm to have darshan.Ashish Dixit, Supervisor, Temple Institute
