Keeping in mind the ongoing festival season, everyone have the unanimous view that necessary precautionary measures should continue to ensure continuity of age-old traditions of Niti-Kanti (rituals) of Mahaprabhu Shree Jagannatha.

Any spread of COVID-19 amongst Sevayat families during these times will be detrimental to the observance of daily Niti-Kanti and rituals of Chandan Jatra, Sanan Jatra and Ratha Jatra.

Keeping the same in mind, it was decided that Shree Jagannatha Temple will remain closed for Darshan of Trinity by the public till June 15.

It was decided to review the SOP from time to time, keeping in view the evolving situation.
