Amid the Covid situation, the Kamrup district administration called off the historic Ambubachi Mela held at Kamakhya temple in Guwahati city. The festival was to start on June 22. The administration has cancelled the Mela for the second time in a row due to COVID-19.
The administration in a notice said it has decided to cancel Ambubachi Mela after it has received a letter from the Doloi management of the Kamakhya devalaya. “Accordingly, lodging and accommodation for the devotees within the premises of Kamakhya temple will not be allowed to operate until further order. Inform all concerned accordingly,” said the notice.
