Member Secretary of the Fund, Dr. Pradip Dhakal, has informed that the fund has also prepared criteria for the devotees who want to enter the Pashupatinath temple
from 16 December 2020. According to him, arrangements will be made for the devotees to enter through one door and exit through the other.
The Pashupatinath temple was completely closed to devotees on March 26 2020 after the government decided to close it after the spread of the corona-virus began to increase. Devotees used to complain that they were not allowed to visit the Pashupatinath temple even on Monday this year. Devotees had expressed their faith by circling the Pashupati area on Monday.
