Bhubaneswar: Paitalagi ritual of Lord Lingaraj stopped for this year, other rituals to continue

Bhubaneswar: The paitalagi ritual of Lord Lingaraj in the famous Lingaraj temple in the capital city of Odisha was stopped for the current year while other rituals will continue as usual.

As per reports, the paitalagi ritual was cancelled due to the difference in opinion between two sects of servitors, the Puja Panda sevayats and the Badu Sevayats.

An important meeting was held in this regard in the Lingaraj temple office. The temple executive officer as well as the Brahmana Nijog, Badu Nijog and Panda Nijog were present. As per the decision taken in the meeting, besides the Paitalagi ritual, other rituals will continue.

Since no outcome could be ascertained regarding the patialagi niti, the Trust Board went to the Endowment Commission for further decision.
