236 CCTV Cameras To Be Installed At Jagannath Temple & Gundicha Temple Before Rath Yatra

Puri: To enhance the security infrastructure at the Jagannath temple and Bada Danda, as many as 236 additional CCTV camers will be installed. Collector Samarth Verma today said that these cameras will be installed at vantage points in the Jagannath Temple and Gundicha Temple.

The tender process for installation of the CCTV cameras has been completed. The cameras will be setup before Rath Yatra, during which Puri will witness a sea of crowd as the grand event was held sans devotees during 2020 and 2021 due to COVID pandemic.

On May 20, the second Rath Yatra coordination meeting will be held in Puri. The meeting will be presided by RDC Central.
