Bhadrachalam Sri Sitaramachandra Swamy Temple will remain closed for Lunar Eclipse, 16-17 July 2019 (Chandra Grahanam). The Partial Lunar Eclipse (Pakshika Chandra Grahanam) will take place from the midnight till early morning.
The lunar eclipse falls between 1.31am and 4.29am on July 17. But since it is a traditional practice to close the Bhadrachalam temple six hours prior to eclipse, the temple remains closed from 6pm of July 16 till 5am of July 17. Till this time there will be no darshan.
The temple doors will be opened in the morning, 17 July 2019.
