Pune: Ahead of the upcoming Navratri celebrations, members of the Chatuhshrungi Devasthan Trust and the Chatuhshrungi Seva Samiti announced that this year from the donations, they have made a gold headgear weighing 1,500 gm for Goddess Durga and also, the safety and security has been taken care of. 

After the Navratri festival, they will start redevelopment of the temple where an escalator will be built which will make it easy for the old and disabled to reach the temple. 

Dilip Angal, Managing Trustee of the Samiti, said, “On October 10 the Navratri festival will begin and on October 18 it will end. During the festival, puja, mahapuja and offerings will be made to the Goddess and just like every year, there will be an offering of flowers from a helicopter, right before the procession on Dussehra.” 

“Along with it, dhol tasha, band, legim nagada, sanai chowghade will also be the attractive part during the procession on Dussehra,” he added. 

“This year, we are installing two breastfeeding centres which will be near the ladies queue. There will be 20 CCTV cameras along with police, police mitra, home guards and private security. We have given the contract to BVG Company to take care of the cleanliness and water bottles will be distributed for free. Also, there will be fire brigade vans and one ambulance,” Angal added.

Angal said, “After the Navratri festival is over, we will be redeveloping the whole temple.”

“The proposed plan is that an escalator will be made, especially for old people and disabled for which Rs 1 crore is estimated. So the temple will be built in three levels: In the first level, there will be a meditation centre, in the second there will be a guest house for pujaris and on the third level, the temple will be situated,”  he added. 

The temple is spread over 400 sq metre and rebuilding of the temple will take place in 550 sq metres, Angal added.
