Puri: Authorities of Shri Jagannath Temple Administration (SJTA) are probing into the photo of the deities inside the sanctum sanctorum Shri Jagannath temple uploaded on the social media.

The incident came to light after the photo of the deities uploaded by a person on facebook went viral.

The incident was later brought to the notice of the SJTA authorities.

Informing the media, SJTA Public Relations Officer (PRO) said the photo of the deities uploaded on facebook belongs to the deities of the Adapa Mandap of Sri Gundicha temple, not the Shri Jagannath temple.
