Puri: Lakhs of devotees thronged Srimandir to have darshan of Lords in golden attire inside the sanctum sanctorum of the temple on the auspicious occasion of Pausha Purnima today.
The Lords will appear in Suna Behsa following the morning rituals and a special ritual known as ‘Pushyabhisek’ on the holy full moon day.
In view of the influx of crowd on the special occasion, the temple administration has made tight security arrangements on premises of the shrine for smooth conduct of the Suna Besha darshan. The barricade has been made from the Grand Road in the pilgrim town. The devotees will enter into the temple through the Singhadwar and will exit through the south gate.
Notably, the Suna Besha of Lord Jagannath and his siblings Lord Balabhadra and Goddess Subhadra is conducted five times in a year. The Pausha Purnima is one of the auspicious occasions when the deities appear in heavy gold jewelries.
