Patitapabana bana snaps off Puri Jagannath temple
Puri: Patitapabana bana, the holy flag fixed atop Nilachakra of Puri Jagannath temple snapped off today.
However, there was no change in the daily rituals of the deities as the other flags fixed atop the temple remained unaffected.
Following the temple tradition, if other flags had fallen off the Nilachakra, the rituals would have been changed accordingly.
The reason for falling off could be either there was an error in tying the flag to the metal wheel or due to strong wind.
