While having "darshanam" in South Indian Vaishnav temples, the priest keeps a conical cap (kirita) on devotee's head.
What might be the significance of this tradition?

  • Are you talking about Vaishnava temples?? In Shiva temples that chadari is not there! Nov 10 '18 at 7:27
  • I have also seen this in Iskon temples but don't know the reason.

  • @AkshayKumarS I have edited the Q to include the word "Vaishnav".

  • @Destroyer I could not find it because I didn't know that it is called "Sadagopuram". Anyways, thanks...

  • It's called a Shatagopam. Shatagopuram is not correct pronunciation. Nov 10 '18 at 13:35
