As per Hindu belief, by taking a dip in the sea and holy rivers and offering prayers to Sun on the day, one can earn virtues of many lifetimes. The Puri district administration made all arrangements for smooth conduct of devotees’ rituals. As many as 30 platoons of police forces, NDRF, ODRAF and Fire Services personnel were deployed to ensure security of the devotees at the beach.
