Similarly, hand wash arrangements are being made at all the existing toilets. All the devotees will have to wash their hands and foot at washrooms at queue line complexes once the darshan resumes.
TTD officials are going to install washbasins along with hand wash liquids extensively across the hill shrine at all the important public places like Kalyanakatta, Annadanam complex, Four Mada Streets, Asthana Mandapam, Kalyana Vedika and central reception office (CRO).
The engineering staff began drawing lines and circles with paint for ensuring physical distance among devotees during the darshan time.
