Silver Makeover On 5 More Doors In Puri Srimandir Complex Soon
Puri: Five more doors inside the complex of the Puri Lord Jagannath Temple will dazzle with all-new look as plans are afoot to plate them with silver.
Puri Srimandir Administrator (Development), Ajay Kumar Jena today informed that the gates of Mahalaxmi Temple, Vimala Temple, Nrusingha Temple, Sata Pahacha and Bhoga Mandapa will be draped with silver. A final decision in this regard will be taken after a special meeting on October 27.
According to official sources, around 2500 kg of silver will be required for the purpose.
In August, the Shree Jagannath Temple Administration had announced to plate the three main gates of Srimandir with silver after a devotee evinced interest to donate 1,920 kg of the precious metal to the temple.
According to sources, a team of the temple administration has already begun the coating work of silver on the three gates – the Beharana Dwara of the main temple, facing the Mukti Mandap, Jaya-Vijaya Dwara of Jagamohan and Kalahata Dwara, facing the sanctum sanctorum.
