For the first time, Srimandir has been adorned with colourful flowers for the Ratha Jatra

Puri:3/7/19: On the eve of Rath Yatra, the Puri Srimandir mesmerised scores of the devotees after being decked up in vivid flowers.

Reportedly, the floral decoration in Srimandir has been taken up by a New Delhi-based Devotee KK Sharma. For the first time, the temple administration has approved such request.

As per reports, around 200 workers have been engaged in the floral decoration of the 12th Century Shrine.




The devotee of Lord Jagannath has not only decorated Srimandir, but also the task to beautify Gundicha Temple, where Lord Jagannath along with siblings will stay during 9-day festival, has been handed over to him, sources in SJTA informed.

Hence, the Gundicha shrine will appear fresh and beautiful with enchanting flowers everyday from tomorrow during 9-day sojourn of Lord Jagannath.

According to reports, Sharma is engaged in the major task with around 200 flower decorators from Delhi. Around 15-20 trip flowers are expected to be used for beautification of two shrines. They will also decorate Srimandir on Suna Besha and Niladri Bije with flowers.
