Facebook page on Lord Jagannath

National Informatics Centre (NIC) will launch the page on Lord Jagannath on Facebook and Twitter within a month. The temple’s website (www.jagannath.nic.in) would also get a renewed look as the NIC is working on modifying the existing designs and contents.

“Since the social networking sites are being browsed by countless people across the globe, this will help spread Jagannath culture far and wide. The webpage would be updated every day. Vital information on Lord Jagannath, the rituals of the temple and minutes of important meetings, relating to the shrine would be uploaded regularly,” temple’s chief administrator Arvind Padhee told.

Besides, the state government has decided to launch a coffee table book on Lord Jagannath. Though the temple administration has been publishing several informative books on Jagannath in Odia, English, Hindi and Bengali languages, this is the first time the shrine body would come out with a coffee table book on the Lord.

The state tourism department will print the book, aimed at propagating Jagannath culture in India and abroad. Popular author Birad Rajaram Yajnik would write the book, which will feature a pictorial representation of the art, culture, rituals and festivals of Lord Jagannath.

Recently, the temple administration launched a calendar, displaying photographs and information about almost all rituals and festivals of the Lord.
