Vrindavan (Mathura). The day before Guru Purnima there were a lot of devotees for the darshan of Shri Banke Bihari. All roads around the temple were blocked from the crowd. The devotees waiting in long lines received the darshan from Thakurji after waiting for hours. The rules of Kovid were also disregarded. Stranger vehicles were not allowed to enter Vrindavan.
This time, due to the prohibition of Govardhan Parikrama on Guru Purnima, the pressure of the devotees is now visible in Vrindavan. The day before, many people came to Shri Banke Bihari city to have darshan from Thakurji and to worship the guru. Its effect was clearly visible on Friday at the intersections around the Bihariji Temple and the streets leading to the temple. A long line of devotees started early in the morning. Because of the large number of devotees, one had to wait a long time for darshan.
The police administration also changed the system. Because of this, there was a scuffle on all the ways to the temple. A scuffle broke out in the temple grounds due to crowd pressure. Meanwhile, most people appeared negligent about covid. Social distancing wasn’t even possible in this situation. Even in the temple grounds, many times the prescribed number were present. It is expected that this situation will become even more serious with Guru Purnima.
Although the police administration did not block the interior of the city, outside vehicles were stopped at the driveway itself. Vehicles coming from the Yamuna Expressway were parked outside. At the Vidyapeeth intersection near the Sribanke Bihari Temple, the traffic jam remained throughout the day.
