Ashlesha Bali seva at Kukke temple to be increased to 4,000 per day

The Kukke Subrahmanya Temple, about 100 kilometers distant, has opted to create infrastructure so that as many devotees as possible can conduct the ‘Ashlesha Bali seva.’ This is one of the most popular sevas at the temple. There is a demand for roughly 2,000 sevas on Ashlesha Nakshatra, and devotees line up for tickets as early as the previous evening.

The construction of four Ashlesha mantapas, with a capacity to accommodate nearly 500 devotees, to perform around 250 ‘Ashlesha Bali seva at a time, in one mantapa (hall), has been finalized. Currently, an average of about 1,000 to 1,300 sevas are performed in a day, in four batches of 250 sevas each. The work is expected to be completed in the next two years.

Due to restrictions, the footfall has been reduced to 2,000–3,000 on weekdays. The online bookings for the Sarpa Samskara puja are full for the next two months. A three-story dasoha Bhavan (dining hall) with a seating capacity of 3,000 people will be constructed. A new power station will be set up exclusively for the temple, at an estimated cost of Rs 11 crore.
