Less than 10 days remaining for Athi Varadar Nindra Kolam and with the crowds thronging Kancheepuram to get a glimpse of God Athi Varadar, the collector of Kancheepuram has made some announcements to control the heavy crowd. His first announcement is that August 16 will be the last day of Darshan, no more Donor Passes will be offered from now. So people with existing donor passes can still use their passes between 5 am to 5pm. New structures are built and separate entry and exit points are created at the West Gopuram for Rs. 300 and Rs. 500 darshans. Huge fans are erected to help devotees to stand through heat and summer. Biscuits and Water cans are provided at regular intervals to help devotees stand in those long queue.
Rs. 500 Sahasranamam Darshan and Rs. 300 Special Darshan will be available till August 15, 2019. You can book those darshans via TNHRCE website.
