Odisha: Ornaments of Puri Srimandir’s Ratna Bhandar to be inspected
Puri: The Law Department of the Odisha Government has written to the Shree Jagannath Temple Administration (SJTA) to inspect the ornaments of the temple’s inner Ratna Bhandar.
The department has also directed the temple administration to fill up the vacant post of Mukti Mandap. The directives have been issued in connection with grievance applications filed by Dillip Kumar Baral and Durga Prasad Mohapatra.
The SJTA had in 2018 attempted to open the Ratna Bhandar on the direction of Orissa High Court to enable Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) to examine its stability. However, the attempt failed as the key to the lock on the door reportedly could not be found.
