MAHABUBNAGAR: Among all the ghats, the Somasila Pushkar Ghat in Mahbubnagar district is the most sought after during the ongoing Krishna Pushakarams. The popularity of the ghat can be gauged from the fact that vehicles are being piled up for several kilometers. However, the long distance from the parking spot to the pushkar ghat does not seem to be a deterrent to the devotees.

Though there was scanty crowd on the first day of the Pushkarams, there was a huge surge of devotees on Tuesday.

However, no special arrangements have been made by the officials to transport kids and elderly from the parking place, which is over a kilometre away from the ghat. Many devotees expressed their anguish over the lack of transportation facilities.
