MYSORE: For those who want to perform abhisheka to Lord Bahubali without visiting Shravanabelagola, here is an opportunity. At the click of the mouse, one can perform abhisheka online during the Mahamastakabhisheka.
The Mysore Tourism Committee launched the facility with the assistance of the company, Software Guru.
Devotees can log on to www.mysoretourism.org and choose the medium for abhisheka - water, kashaya, milk, sugarcane juice, flower, sandal, coconut, turmeric, kumkum and also perform mangalarati and offer floral tributes.
"Even if devotees visit Shravanabelagola, they have to be content with watching the celebrations. The online facility will allow the individual to perform abhisheka to Lord Bahubali," a release from the Mysore Tourism Committee said.
In view of the heavy tourist inflow in connection with the Mahamastakabhisheka celebrations in Shravanabelagola, the KSRTC has come out with several tourist circuits. The poster and brochure containing the information were released here by Deputy Commissioner S. Selva Kumar on Wednesday.
