No Damage To Puri Srimandir’s Neelachakra: ASI

Puri: The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) on Sunday said that there has been no damage to the Neelachakra atop the Jagannath temple in Puri by the extremely severe cyclonic storm Fani.

According to reports, two ASI engineers climbed atop the temple to examine the condition of the Neelachakra. They found that the Neelachakra is safe but the plaster around and under it has come off, which will be repaired soon.

The ASI team has completed the repair work of the idols of two lions of the Baraha temple, the ‘kalasa’ atop the Bhoga Mandap and the small replica of the Srimandir between the Bimala and Bhubaneswari temples in the Srimandir premises.

As almost all the major repair of the Srimandir has been completed, the ASI officials are confident that the assignment will be fully completed before the annual Rath Yatra to be held on July 4.
