Puri: ‘Patitapabana bana’, the holy flag fixed atop Nilachakra of Puri Jagannath Temple today snapped off today.

The detaching of the flag from the Nilachakra meanwhile did not have any impact on any rituals in the temple as the other flags fixed atop the temple remained unaffected. As per temple tradition, if other flags had fallen off the Nilachakra, the rituals would have been changed accordingly.

Sources said the reason for such an incident could be either loosening of the flag from the Nilachakra or due to effect of strong gusty winds.


Earlier last year on October 6, one of the flags hoisted atop the temple  caught fire in a lightning strike and had to be replaced by a new one.
