Various places of worship reopened in different states of India amid the Covid-induced lockdown due to the second wave of the Coronavirus.

With the Rajasthan government's permit to reopen places of worship from Monday, devotees have started offering prayers at Pushkar's world famous Brahma Temple. Temples also reopened in other districts like Bikaner, and Jaipur.

Devotees on Monday also arrived at Ajmer Sharif Dargah to offer prayers following the COVID-19 safety norms. The dargah was closed from April 15 for the common people due to COVID-induced restrictions.

The famous Mahakaleshwar temple at Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh reopened for devotees at 6 am on Monday after a gap of 80 days. The temple was shut for the public on April 9 this year following a rise in daily COVID-19 cases in the state.

"Devotees have to take online permission for the deity's 'darshan' at the temple. Those who have received at least one shot of vaccine against coronavirus would have to show its certificate to enter the temple, or else, carry an RT-PCR negative test report issued 48 hours before entering the religious premises," the temple's assistant administrator R K Tiwari said.

The temples in the districts of Chennai, Kancheepuram, Chengalpettu, and Tiruvallur districts in Tamil Nadu reopened on Monday.
