Puri: Queue system was introduced at the Jagannath temple here on an experimental basis from today.
The new system came into force as part of the reform measures suggested by the Supreme Court.
Puri district Collector Jyoti Prakash Das, SP Sarthak Sarangi were present at the temple to take stock of the system.
The Shree Jagannath Temple Administration implemented the new system under which devotees will enter the 12th century shrine in a queue at the Singhadwara and directly have darshan of the deities at the main temple first. Later, they will pay darshan at other temples located inside the shrine through barricades.
After having a darshan of the deities, devotees will exit through three other gates.
The decision to implement the queue system on a trial basis was taken at a meeting of the Jagannath Temple Managing Committee headed by Gajapati Maharaj of Puri.
