For a smooth functioning of rituals during Snana Purnima and the chariot festival, The Rath Yatra Coordination Committee, which had its second round of meeting last Tuesday here, had a long discussion with the representatives of the Chhatisa Nijog and Daitapati Nijog to ensure the Snana Yatra and its rituals are conducted in a hasslefree manner. The Sri Jagannath Temple Administration (SJTA) has issued a 16-point notification stating clearly how the rituals are to be conducted and who all are authorized to access the Snana Mandap or the bathing platform. Elaborate police and security arrangements have been made to handle the huge crowd that would  congregate at the main gate of the temple to have a glimpse of the Snana Yatra.
