The renowned Bankey Bihari temple in Vrindavan will open its doors to devotees on October 17, after remaining closed for over six months in view of the coronavirus pandemic, a temple priest said on Wednesday.

He said all devotees will have to follow the guidelines and protocols issued by the central and state governments to check the spread of COVID-19. The priest also said the closure time was utilised to carry out some renovation work.

The temple was closed for devotees since the lockdown was imposed by the central government to contain the spread of the pandemic, priest Shashank Goshwami said.

“The renovation of the floor of the ‘chowk’ will be complete by October 15 and the temple would reopen by October 17,” he said. Following the guidelines and protocols issued by the central and state governments to prevent the spread of COVID-19 will be compulsory for all devotees coming to the temple, he said.
