Puri, Aug 19: Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan and Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw on Thursday visited Puri and offered prayers at the Jagannath temple entrance.

The Ministers offered prayers in front of Singhadwara of the 12th-century shrine as devotees are not allowed to enter the temple due to Covid-19 restrictions.

While the residents of Puri are allowed to enter the temple from August 16-20, the devotees outside Puri will have the darshan of the deities from August 23.  

The Union Ministers also visited Satyabadi Bana Bidyalaya in Puri and paid floral tributes to Panchasakha.

The educational institution was established by renowned social worker and freedom fighter Utkalmani Gopabandhu Das in 1909.
