No More Two-Km-Long Walk For Paying Obeisance To Deities At Jagannath temple

Puri: 24/1/21:The following resentment among devotees over the two-km-long barricade from Market Chhak to Shree Mandir in Puri, the district administration today decided to shorten the barricade. Puri SP Kanwar Vishal Singh informed the present barricade will be shortened considering the difficulties faced by visitors especially senior citizens. From tomorrow onwards, the barricade will be set up from Marichikote to Shree Mandir, he added.

Worth mentioning, the temple was closed for public darshan on Sunday in order to sanitize the premises.

Earlier, the district administration erected barricades from Market Chhak to Shree Mandir expecting a large number of footfall after it was decided to allow devotees to enter the temple without producing Covid negative test report.

As per a standard operating procedure issued by the Shree Jagannath Temple Administration (SJTA) earlier, devotees are being allowed to pay obeisance to deities from 7 AM through a queue. There is a separate queue for senior citizens and differently-abled devotees.
