Lord Jagannath to get coolers


PURI: A new cooling mechanism prepared by the Archaeolog­ical Survey of India (ASI) would be installed in the ‘Garbhagrih­a’ (sanctum sanctorum) of Shri Jagannath Temple here within seven days, officials said. The cooling system that would cost `24 lakh was required as heat has been affecting the longevity of the 12th-century shrine. As the presiding deities of the temple have left for a nine-day sojourn on the occasion of Rath Yatra, this is the appropriat­e time to undertake the conservati­on work, officials said.
