As early as 4 a.m., public started rushing in to the temples. The idols of Lord Shiva were covered with flowers and garlands, incense filled the atmosphere and there was no end to mantras and bhakti geets. The enchantment of mantras created an atmosphere of absolute devotion.
Many people walked up to the temple at Eklingi ji and there were others who stood on the entire route to serve and assist these devotees. Be it females or kids, everyone rejoiced in the name of Mahadev and walked upto the entire length till Ekling ji temple. As per reports, public even prayed for the welfare and security of the Indian forces. Public danced to various bhajans on the route and some organisations even organised bhajan evenings.
