Women devotees and youngsters in large numbers thronged the Renuka Yellamma Temple at Darveshpuram, 12 km from here, to offer special prayers to the snake god to mark ‘Nagula Chaviti’ festival on Saturday. The surroundings presented a festive atmosphere.

Dressed in colourful silks, women worshipped the god, offering milk and eggs at the snake pit. They also offered special prayers.

Long queues missing

According to observers, the usual long queues of devotees seen at the temple for years were missing, might be due to chilly winds.

Similar, crowds were present in the Yellamma Temples at Marriguda and near Panagal, both close to the town. Women offered milk to the snake god at Venkateshwara Temple in V.T. Colony and Pachachala Someshwar Temple, Panagal.
