Lakhs of devotees, visiting Srikalahasti temple near Tirupati, perform Rahu Ketu pujas, as a part of which they donate silver snake hoods in the hundi. The temple has not been using this silver since 2011, alleging malpractices. But recently, it obtained orders to melt the silver and make silver hoods, which are given to devotees during the puja. The temple authorities have now given green signal to use the silver for making the snake hoods.
