Puri: The work for silver plating three gates of the Jagannath temple in Puri began on Wednesday.

According to sources, a five-member team led by Shree Jagannath Temple Administration (SJTA) executive engineer Ashish Kumar Subuddhi examined the Beharana Dwara (gate) of the main temple, facing the Mukti Mandap, Jaya-Vijaya Dwara of Jagmohan and Kalahata Dwara, facing the sanctum sanctorum, and took the measurement for the draping.
