Ratna Bhandar to be opened on April 4th

 

Report;Bureau,Odishabarta

 

Puri:The long-wait for announcement of the date for opening of Ratna Bhandar in Puri Jagannath Temple finally ended after Chief Administrator of Shri Jagannath Temple Administration (SJTA) Pradeep Jena today informed that the inspection will be done on April 4.

 

A ten-member team including experts from Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) will inspect the Ratna Bhandar (treasure trove). The inspection will be carried out only for the assessment of the structural stability and safety of the Ratna Bhandar.

 

The ten-member team includes Puri King Gajapati Maharaj Dibyasingha Deb, Pattajoshi Mohapatra, Bhandara Mekap, Tadhau Karana, Deula Karana, two engineers of ASI, two members of the ASI Core Committee- GC Mitra and NC Pal, and Advocate NK Mohanty, who were appointed as Amicus Curiae by the Orissa High Court to inspect the on-going Jagamohan repair works.

 

As per the directive, all members of the inspection team will go through a three-tier checking before entering the Ratna Bhandar.

 

First the members will be frisked by police officials to bar them from taking any kind of metal items or electronic gadgets with them. In the second stage they have to change their clothes and wear ‘gamuchha’ (traditional towel), provided by the temple administration and only then would be allowed to pass through the ‘Beharana Dwara’ to reach near the entrance of the Ratna Bhandar. In the final step, the inspectors would be scanned thoroughly by the servitors of the temple authorised to check the Ratna Bhandar entrants as per the temple tradition.
