A large number of people were seen at Birla Mandir to offer prayers on first day of New Year. Temples like Curfew wali Mata, Kali Mata Mandir witnessed heavy rush. Heavy rush of visitors caused traffic jam specially at Van Vihar National Park and Boat Club road though policemen were deployed to clear the traffic.
