Puri district administration has imposed Section-144 of CrPc in and around the Alarnath Temple

Brahmagiri:6/6/20: The Puri district administration has imposed Section-144 of CrPc in and around the Alarnath Temple here to restrict the devotee for having holy darshan of Lord Alarnath during Anasara rituals of Lord Jagannath.

In order to curb the spread of COVID-19, Section-144 has been enforced in Alarnath Temple and outside the shrine from yesterday night and will remain in force till June 20, informed Brahmagiri Tehsildar Kishore Kumar Panda.

Only the servitors with identity card can enter into the temple premises through north gate, he added.

There is a belief that the devotees have darshan of Lord Alarnath when Lord Jagannath and his siblings stay inside the Anansara House of Srimandir for 15 days after the deities fall sick following holy shower on Snana Jatra.

The Lord of Universe and His siblings go on a fortnight-long hibernation known as ‘Anasara’ after they fall sick following the bath with 108 pitchers of holy water. During this period, thousands of devotees used to throng the Alarnath Temple seeking blessings of Lord Vishnu.
