After the state government assigned the responsibility of reopening the temples to the district collectors, most of the temples in Cuttack and Kendrapada districts reopened from Wednesday.

In Cuttack district, Dhabaleswar temple is yet to be reopened to the devotees while the Cuttack Municipal Corporation (CMC) has not taken decision on reopening the temples in the city.

Meanwhile, except Gupteswar temple, all other temples reopened in Koraput district. Koraput collector allowed to reopen the temples by following the COVID guidelines. The district administration did not reopen the Gupteswar temple expecting heavy rush in the ensuing Sravana month.
