According to sources devotees, including a large number of women thronged the temples since morning to offer prayers to the Hindu goddess of power Mahankali or Kali. Meanwhile attired in their best, women queued up at the temples to offer 'Bonalu', which consists of cooked rice, jaggery, and curd and turmeric water, carried in steel and clay pots on their heads.
