Puri, May 13: The Jagannath Reception Centre, which was proposed to be constructed inside the prohibited zone under the Srimandir Parikrama Project, will be shifted to a farther location.
The Cultural Advisory Committee (CAC) of the Jagannath heritage corridor project has agreed to the proposal of the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) to shift the reception centre beyond the prohibited zone of 100 metres.
The panel headed by Gajapati Maharaja Dibyasingha Deb has decided that the proposed reception centre will be established on the regulated zone (within 200 metre) of the temple.
Earlier, it was decided for construction of the reception centre within the 75 metre of the boundary wall of the temple.
The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) had then raised concern over the plan.
