Daily Rituals Stop at Puri Jagannath Temple Following Row Over Banned Servitor’s Entry

Puri: Controversy over entry of a Singhari servitor, barred from offering services, into the sanctum sanctorum, resulted in the disruption of regular daily rituals of the deities at Puri Srimandir on Friday.

Other servitors at this one of the four holy Dhams of Hindus protested against the entry of this Singhari servitor and stopped the rituals at the temple.

So, rituals of Sri Jagannath, Sri Balabhadra and Goddess Subhadra could be held after ‘Mangala Arati’.

Shree Jagannath Temple Administration (SJTA) authorities initiated discussions with the servitors of various nijogs to end the impasse.

“Stringent action will be taken against the concerned person for the violation of discipline. Discussion is underway with the servitors of various nijogs. We are hopeful that things will become normal and the rituals will be performed at the temple soon”, said SJTA Chief Administrator Ranjan Kumar Das.

According to the latest reports, negotiations were underway.
