Puducherry, Aug. 1 -- Eid-al-adha was celebrated with religious fervour by the Muslims in the Union Territory.

With the government permitting niskar inside the mosques, special "Niskars" were held in many mosques with faithful wearing masks and adopting social distancing.

The faithful brought their Niskar mat and they were allowed into the mosques after sanitizing their hands and testing their temperature.
