Jagannnath Puri Temple Closed For Secret Ritual

by Priya Bharti

The Lord Jagannath Temple in Puri has been closed for devotees till 3 pm today due to the conduct of the secret ‘senapata lagi’ ritual.

The ritual is performed to protect the body of the Lords during their Pahandi Bije (procession) to the Snana Mandap (bathing altar).

During the ‘senapata lagi’ ritual, the Daitapati servitors apply a paste made of Baula Katha (piece of wood of Baula tree) to the body of the Lords.
