In the meantime, Saivita devotees went to temples for special poojas.

Hundreds of Saiva devotees attended Ki'linochchi Murukan temple.

Some of the devotees were seen breaking coconuts in front of the temple, praying for safe return of their kith and kin still believed to be in the custody of the Sri Lankan military after the war ended on 18 May 2009.
