This Dubai Hindu Temple Will Close Temporarily

A temple in Bur Dubai will close temporarily on Thursday and Friday in time for Maha Shivratri, a major Hindu festival.

Because it would be difficult to maintain COVID-19 measures as people que for prayer, trustees chose to close the temple.

“The temple will be completely closed with no darshan or visits because we do not want to take any chances of people congregating and standing in the streets,” said Raju Shroff, a trustee of the Sindhi Guru Darbar temple to The National.

The temple trust is building another bigger shrine in Jebel Ali that will be ready in time next year in October for Diwali, the festival of lights.
