  • Summary:

    The volunteering for Giripradakshana was taken by Vizag Volunteers, it was a great deal to manage such crowds but still our volunteers did not lose enthusiasm, the giripradakshana is a holy event that takes place in the city of vizag for 2 days, it starts in the evening of the day before and ends until the devotees finish walking around the holy hills and climb on top of the simhachalam hill. There is a lot of crowd management during the holy event of giripradakshana, as the devotees involve themselves with the lord Lakshmi Narshima Swamy. This holy event allows the devotees to walk around the Hill for about 32 kms, and has an estimated crowd in lakhs. Vizag Volunteers had volunteered for the whole event, from managing crowds to managing queues to giving water to the devotees. And also managing the crowd near the offering of coconuts to the lord, Not only that but after the 32 kms devotional walk the devotees also climb the Simhacalam hill barefoot, during this time our volunteers came hand in hand to support the devotees by giving them water and taking them to aid stations if necessary and giving proper treatment.
