The Kanyaka Parameswari temple has been decorated with currency notes- flowers amounting to over Rs.1.11 crore. The organisers decided to adorn the goddess with garlands and bouquets of origami flowers made from currency notes of various denominations and colors on Dussehra.

The organizers used currency notes valued at Rs.1,11,11,111 for the decoration of the temple based in the Jogulamba Gadwal district of Telangana.
According to some media reports it was found that this year due to the unprecedented COVID-19 downturn, the offering amount was depreciated to 1.11 crore from earlier which was 3.33 crore in 2017.
Organizers revealed that all these funds were collected from local devotees and were later returned to them after the celebration ended.
This year, it was tough for the organizers to arrange money of various denominations and colors due to the coronavirus pandemic and this resulted in a financial crisis. Only 50 devotees participated this year.
