Puri Deities fall sick, Devotees throng Alarnath Temple
Puri: As per the traditions and rituals, the deities at Puri Jagannath Temple – Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra and Devi Subhadra fell sick and got into the ‘anasara ghara’ after the Snana Jatra that was held yesterday on the auspicious occasion of Deva Snana Purnima.
Devotees, who wish to have a darshan of the deities, will have to head towards Alarnath Temple in Brahmagiri, as as per the belief Lord Jagannath manifests in the form of Lord Alarnath for 15 days following Deva Snana Purnima.
Adequate arrangements have been made at Alarnath to ensure smooth darshan of the deities during the 15-day period. Heavy police deployment have been made.
