The Kamakhya temple, the place that attracts maximum number of tourists and devotees would however, open from July 1, Kamakhya Board officials said.
Balaji temple saw not more than 45 visitors since morning. The temple has made all arrangements to comply with social distancing norms as laid down by the government. Only 20 people at a time would be allowed in places of worship. The number would be less in religious places with smaller areas.
