Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar reached the Mata Mansa Devi temple at Panchkula near here on Tuesday morning to offer prayers.
Hundreds of devotees were seen queuing up at this shrine and other temples across Haryana and Punjab to offer prayers.
The Panchkula district administration has again decided not to issue VVIP and VIP passes this time for the Mansa Devi shrine.
Over 10,000 VIP and VVIP passes used to be issued earlier.
The VVIPs expected this time at the shrine include the governor, chief minister, ministers, lawmakers, judges, senior bureaucrats and police officers and others.
The administration has made arrangements for golf carts to ferry the elderly devotees and physically challenged.
