Puri: Devotees will not be allowed to have darshan of the sibling deities for about six hours from 9 pm as Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra and Devi Subhadra will be given a special session of make-up known as Banaklagi ritual atop of Adap Mandap at Gundicha Temple.

Since the ritual is a secret one and no one except a small group of servitors are allowed to be present inside the sanctum sanctorum to conduct the divine service, the general darshan of devotes are restricted. The special ritual takes about five to six hours.

Dattamohapatra servitors perform the ritual.
