Puri Srimandir Photos, Videos Go Viral Again

21 December 2019


Puri: Photos and videos of Lord Jagannath Temple in the holy town of Puri have yet again gone viral on social media along with photos of Gundicha Temple.

A youth going by the name Som Modak from Kalna in Bardhaman district of West Bengal has published the photos and videos on his Facebook account.

Modak has made a documentary-style video of Lord Jagannath Temple and has uploaded photos of Gundicha Temple, Aruna Stamba (Sun Pillar), Garbha Gruha (Sanctum Sanctorum), etc.

The posts have vexed many devotees of the Lord. While some have reprimanded Modak for uploading the video, others have threatened to file a case against him.

Earlier today photo of a man using a mobile phone while standing on Chahani Mandap inside the Jagannath temple premises had gone viral on social media.

The above incidents have put a question mark on the security arrangements at the 12th-century shrine as phones and cameras are strictly prohibited inside the temple premises.
