Puri: Devotees made a long beeline to have first glimpse of Chaturdhamurti (Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra and Devi Subhadra along with Sudarshan) on the occasion of Nabajouban darshan at the Shree Jagannath Temple in Odisha’s Puri after fortnight-long interval.
After recuperating from illness due to holy bath on Snana Purnima, the deities are all set to reappear in their rejuvenated youthful form. The deities were under medication at the Anasara Ghara since June 17.
While parmanik darshan (ticket darshan) started by 2 pm and continued till 3.30 pm, sahana mela (free darshan) began by 3.30 pm. It was scheduled to continue till 4.30 pm but was later extended till 11.30 pm due to rush of devotees.
