SJTA Files Plaint After Srimandir Sanctum Sanctorum Pic Goes Viral

Puri: As a photo of the sanctum sanctorum of the Shree Jagannath Temple in Puri went viral on social media, Shree Jagannath Temple Administration (SJTA) has lodged a formal complaint with the Singhadwara police in this regard.

As the photos went viral after a few hours, the posts were promptly deleted. Lord Jagannath was purportedly seen in the picture that was posted on social media.

The photo has been retrieved from the Facebook account of a West Bengal youth named Akash Choudhury.

The pictures were seemingly clicked from the Jaya-Bijaya Dwara of the temple as it captured the idols of the holy trinity on the ‘Ratna Singhasana’.

It is suspected that the photos were clicked before the Bada Singhara Besha ritual of the deities.

It is worth mentioning that mobile phones and cameras are strictly prohibited inside the premises of the temple.

It is yet to be ascertained despite the tight security cover, how the accused managed to take the device inside the temple and clicked the pictures.

Moreover, the security personnel have been asked to examine devotees before their entry into the shrine. It seems the order is complied with.

Similar incidents had also been reported several times in the past indicating serious security breach at the temple.
