Puri, Jan 10: The Puri town is all decked up to welcome guests and devotees ahead of inauguration of Parikrama project on January 17.
Around 20 special guests will come from various prominent Jagannath temples from across the globe to join the Yajna. A large stage has been set up near the Yajna mandap at the north-east corner of Jagannath temple.
They will be accommodated in the guest houses of Shree Jagannatha Temple Administration.
Around 40 magistrates will be deployed along with police force to oversee the Yajna Utsav. Cultural programmes will be held at various places around the temple.
Over 40 CCTV cameras have been installed around Meghanad wall to keep vigil of the shrine.
Nine swing doors will greet visitors travelling to the pilgrim town during the Parikrama project inauguration.
These apart, the newly-built ‘Shree Setu’ (trumpet bridge), a 2.8-kilometre bypass stretch, would now allow vehicles coming from Bhubaneswar and Brahmagiri to directly reach a multi-level parking spot and visit the temple without entering the city.
