Pictures Of Puri Srimandir Again Go Viral On Social Media

Puri: Months after photos of Lord Jagannath and his siblings were found posted on a Facebook account, pictures of Srimandir once again went viral on social media on Saturday thereby exposing the poor security measures at the 12th century shrine.
This time few photographs of Srimandir's Nata Mandap and exterior of Jagamohan were found posted on the Facebook account of one Anand Ginkintla of Hyderabad.
The photographs were taken from Kirtan Chakada during evening. However, police is yet to trace the person who made the pictures viral on social media.
The incident has again elicited sharp reactions from devotees who have accused the administration of being callous in maintaining adequate and strict security arrangements inside the temple.
It is not the first time that the photos of Srimandir have gone  viral. Earlier in November last year, photos of repair works of Jagamohan, the hall facing the sanctum sanctorum of the 12th century shrine, were uploaded on social media.
Police had also registered a case against two youths, including one from Pune in Maharashtra for posting pictures of temple's inner precinct on Facebook in December last year.
