Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments (HR&CE) Minister P. K. Sekarbabu, on Thursday, launched a scheme to send prasadams of 48 major temples in the State, to the homes of devotees. 

The department has tied up with the Department of Posts for this, he said. Devotees can book prasadams on the department’s website or through the newly-launched, Thirukoil mobile app. “Devotees have to pay for the puja to be performed, and the postal charge for the same. In three months, this facility will be available worldwide,” Mr. Sekarbabu said.

Through the Thirukoil app, devotees can get details of the 50 major temples in the State, including their history, legends, pujas, timings of darshan, important festivals, 360-degree views of the temples, book wheelchairs and also view festival videos live and make donations for various temple work projects and annadhanam. Work is on to upload the details of 88 more temples on to the app.

HR&CE Department Secretary K. Manivasan, Officer on Special Duty J. Kumaragurubaran, Commissioner K. Muralidharan and Director, Postal Services, Tamil Nadu Circle K. Arumugam participated.
