Thousands of devotees paid obeisance at the famous Bawe Wali Mata Temple on the first Navratra today.
Security personnel deployed by the district administration and local volunteers had a tough time managing the heavy rush. Long queues of the devotees could be witnessed since early morning right from the main entrance upto the temple.
Such was the enthusiasm among the devotees that they started reaching the temple along with
their family members early in the morning around 4:00 AM.
The whole temple complex has been given a decorated look with flowers and lights for nine-day-long festivities dedicated to incarnations of Goddess Durga.
