Khasapada Ritual: Darshan at Puri Srimandir to be Restricted for 5 Hrs Today

Puri: Darshan of the holy trinity at Puri Srimandir is to be restricted from 5 PM to 10 PM today on account of the ‘Khasapada’ ritual.

Devotees will be deprived of the darshan Lord Jagannath and siblings Lord Balabhadra and Devi Subhara at the Puri Srimandir for five hours.

According to the Shri Jagannath Temple Administrator (SJTA), the ritual will be conducted from 5.00 pm to 10.00 pm.

Khasapada Lagi Niti is a secret ritual and hence darshan of the deities will remain prohibited during this period. The ritual is conducted on the Dark 14th of the Chaitra month of the Hindu almanac. It is specially conducted Shreepayars (holy feet) of the deities. The lords’ feet are covered with white clothes.

To conduct the rituals, the main doors of the temple will be closed after the offering of the second prasad at Bhoga Mandap in the afternoon.
