Extensive security preparations have been undertaken for Sandhya Darshan at Adapa Mandap. Due to the demand, five additional parking spaces have been added in Puri. Anyone who prays to the gods on Adap Mandap (at the temple’s sanctum sanctorum at the top of Ratnasimhasan) is said to be released from the cycle of rebirth. To prevent delays like those experienced this year during Rath Yatra and Hera Panchami, certain significant decisions were made in a meeting chaired by the Revenue Divisional Commissioner (RDC).
