Thousands throng Mansa Devi shrine

Navratra Mela begins amid elaborate security arrangements

As the nine-day long Navratra Mela began at the Mata Mansa Devi Shrine Complex on Friday, thousands of devotees gathered to pay their obeisance. Haryana Chief Secretary Dharamvir inaugurated the fair.

"Elaborate arrangements have been made by the Administration so that lakhs of devotees from Punjab, HP and Haryana do not face any problem. Also the main parking of the shrine has been shifted to a new venue, said to be almost ten times bigger than the one used previously," said the spokesperson of the shrine board.

Apart from providing round-the-clock ambulance facilities and dispensary, the authorities stated that as many as 17 CCTV cameras have been installed on the shrine premises.

Most of the devotees were impressed with the arrangements in place.

"We have come all the way from Surajpur for the Navratra Mela. The place is well-organised and we plan to visit it on every navratra," said Santosh Kumari, a devotee.
