Study on the design for regulating queue taken up with NIT-T experts

The Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowment Board has planned to improvise the queue pattern at Srirangam Sri Ranganathaswamy Temple with a view to accommodating more number of devotees and for minimising the waiting time.

The temple is always over-crowded with devotees and the nearest “prakaram” outside the sanctum sanctorum was small as compared to the large congregation round the year.

The temple is associated with several rituals involving the processional idol of Namperumal round the year.

“The processional idol is taken out from the sanctum sanctorum, but brought to different places in the temple, depending upon the significance of the festival,” S. Kalyani, Joint Commissioner, HR and CE and Executive Officer of the temple told The Hindu here on Monday. A study on the design for regulating the queue has been taken up with experts from National Institute of Technology - Tiruchirapalli.

Selection of design

She said the design would be selected in such a manner that it suited both devotees and the processional locus of Namperumal.
