THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Restrictions imposed on visiting the Lord Ayyappa shrine at Sabarimala following the deluge have been lifted and would facilitate the entry of devotees, when the temple opens for monthly puja in the Malayalam month 'Kanni' (on September 16), sources said.

Nilakkal will become the base camp of Sabarimala and private vehicles, including two-wheelers of devotees would not be permitted to proceed to Pampa as Pampa Manalpuram on the foothills of Sabarimala that houses toilets, hotels and shops have been damaged in the floods.

The Kerala State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) would arrange buses to transport devotees from Nilakkal to Pampa at the foothills.

The bridge at Pampa-Triveni, which got sub-merged in flood waters and buried in thick deposits of sand, was also restored. TDB have roped in TATA projects for the restoration works at Pampa.

The board would make arrangements for conducting 'Annadanam' to supply free food to pilgrims visiting the hill shrine during the five-day long monthly pooja.

The preparations made for the monthly pooja was reviewed at a meeting held at Pampa on Thursday headed by Travancore Devaswom Board (TDB) President A Padma Kumar.
