Puri, Nov 12: The Puri district administration has imposed Section 144 of CrPC at the Sakhigopal temple in order to avoid huge gathering on the occasion of ‘Anla Nabami’. The decision was taken in order to contain the spread of Covid-19 pandemic.

As per the decision, devotees will not be allowed to get a glimpse of Radha’s feet as part of the ‘Radha Pada darshan’ ritual at the Sakhigopal temple.

The darshan of the deity is not allowed for general public. However, all the rituals will be performed inside the temple.

Worth mentioning, every year, during the holy month of Kartik, thousand of devotees congregate at the premises of Sakhigopal temple. It is believed that viewing radha’s feet and worshipping the Anla tree (Amla tree) on this day brings great fortune to devotees.
