Trivandrum: The online booking for the 2014-15 season of Sabarimala pilgrimage has commenced on the Sabarimala Virtual Queue system. According to a release from the Kerala Police Information Centre, the Virtual Queue booking system introduced by Kerala police is an attempt to improve the Sabarimala pilgrimage experience.
Those who are planning the Sabarimala pilgrimage can register their names at www.sabarimalaq.com. Pilgrims will have to provide personals details like name, age, photo, address and photo ID card number while registering. The police have made arrangements for the registered pilgrims on the virtual queue to go directly from Pampa to Sannidhanam ‘nadappanthal’ cutting the long queues.
While registering their names, pilgrims can select the day of their choice from the calendar provided on the portal based on the availability. Once the booking is over, they have to take a print out of the virtual queue coupon which carries details of the pilgrim as well as the booking date and day, after saving it on the website.
The Virtual Queue coupon should be shown at the verification counter in Pampa so that the pilgrim will be issued an entry card. Only those carrying the virtual card can avail of the facilities provided in the virtual queue system.
Pilgrims carrying the virtual queue coupon should show the photo ID card at the verification counter. Photo ID card is not a must for those under the age of 18 years. The pilgrims need to arrive on time on the day mentioned on the coupon for gaining entry to the virtual queue system.
The Virtual Queue system is a free service provided by Kerala Police. Those who have not booked in the virtual queue portal can make their ‘darshan’ by standing in the regular queue.
