Puri: Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra and Devi Subhadra are now at the ‘Adapa Mandap’ inside the Sri Gundicha temple. The deities were taken inside the Gundicha temple from their respective chariots through Pahandi ritual on Tuesday.
Security arrangements were made for the smooth conduct of ‘Pahandi’ rituals of the deities. Puri collector Dhiren Patnaik, SP Anup Sahoo and Sri Jagannath Temple Administration (SJTA) supervised the entire proceedings. The deities will saty in the ‘Adapa Mandap’ for nine days.
