Speaking to media here, SJTA Chief Administrator Krishan Kumar Devotees said the devotees will now be allowed to enter the Jagannath Temple on Sundays as per a fresh standard operating procedure (SOP). Earlier, the temple authorities had stopped on darshan on Sunday for sanitisation works in view of COVID-19.
Kumar said the visitors will enter the temple through Singhadwar and come out after the darshan through all gates except Singhadwar. Night time sanitisation of the temple premises will be conducted three times a week, he added.
He further said the devotees will be allowed to take Mahaprasad at Anand Bazaar and designated places on temple premises.
