Part of Joranda Mahima shrine demolished

Dhenkanal, Nov. 22: Two temples-Bati Mandir and Dhuni Mandir- located on the premises of famous Mahima shrine at Joranda in Dhenkanal district were demolished on Tuesday. 

 The district administration imposed prohibitory orders under Section 144 of CrPC to prevent any untoward incident during the demolition drive.

Notably, ownership of Bati Mandir and Dhuni Mandir has been a point of contention between Bakkaladhari Mahima Samaj and Kaupindhari Mahima Samaj. Since 1945, the High Court had been hearing arguments in the case. The local administration demolished the temples following the court order.
