On Thursday, around one lakh pilgrims were present on the occasion, including ISRO scientist K Siddharth and his family, said Murari Agrawal, the founder-president of Sri Giriraj Seva Samiti, which organises the community offering event.

The Chhappan Bhog is made with 56 different items which is offered to Lord Krishna. According to Hindu traditions, such offerings are organized to please god Krishna during the 'Dwapar' period.


For preparing the 21,000 kg 'prasadam' with ghee and other items, cooks from Lucknow, Agra, Hathras, Indore, Ratlam and Madurai were brought, Agarwal said.

"It was a blending of spirituality and innovations made in the scientific world," he said.
