Visakhapatnam: Vaikunta Ekadasi was celebrated with fervour at several temples in the city on Monday.

Special arrangements to provide an Uttaradwaram or entrance at the northern side to have darshan were made by the temple authorities – from the biggest temple of Simhachalam to the local shrines for the benefit of devotees. For, darshan of God from Uttaradwaram is considered very auspicious on the day.

Devotees thronged temples from the morning when Tiruppavai was recited.
