Kamakhya Temple Management Committee decides to cancel ‘Ambubachi Mela’ this year


Guwahati: The Kamakhya Temple Management Committee on Thursday has decided to cancel the ‘Ambubachi Mela’ this year amidst the Covid-19 outbreak.

The ‘Ambubachi’ religious fair was supposed to begin from June 22, 2020 has been cancelled owing to the guidelines given by the Ministry of Health Affairs.

The temple committee has clearly mentioned that they will be following the minimum rituals during ‘Ambubachi’ but will strictly abstain from any gathering inside the premises of Kamakhya temple.

They also mentioned that this year they are not going to entertain or arrange food and accommodation facilities for the ‘SADHUS-SANTS’ attending the fair.

It is to be noted that this is, perhaps, for the first time that Kamakhya Temple will have the rituals without the congregation of people.
