    For God sake do not blindly believe what western reports says.
    Do checking yourself and conclude.
    Also do not involve any foreign expert to do the repair works.

    Puri Jaganath Temple is our Shradha Kendra, its our duty to protect it on any cost.

  4. SURENDRA ULLAL says:

    Devout Hindus across the world should have a fund raising functions wherever possible and ask Orissa as well ad Central Govt. to start repair and cleaning work of the temple. Unfortunately most of the Hindu temples. excepting a few like Mangesh Temple in Goa and few others are neglected by the so called Hindu tample management committees. Legislations must be brought in respective assemblies or parliament and approerate measures must be taken. It is enougg of tardiness of the governments, and Hindus whould not keep quite any more. A
    wake and protect Hindu Dharma and Holy Placess. If not all the invasions and atrocities against them has not work so far, our apathy will do it.

    Organiize and halep rejuvenate Sanatana Hindu Dharms.

    It should be evaluated and if need to be repaired then it should be done asap before we have more damage to our Mandir

  6. NARASIMHA says:

    Dont believe in western reports they may want to see the structural secret behind this .because they may know what is the secret behind this temple and how this structure has been made.

  7. Debendra Samantaray says:

    Irresponsible reporting with poor knowledge of fact.
    Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) has never officially said that the temple will collapse anytime.
    After his resignation, ASI technical core committee chairman GC Mitra had said, if necessary steps were not taken immediately, the Puri temple Jagamohan may (not will) come down. But during his tenure as ASI technical core committee chairman Mr. Mitra has never sounded any alert like this. He also has never taken appropriate step in this regard.
    Also it is to mention that there is problem in Jagamohan (part of the temple) only.
    Other parts of Puri temple is safe.
    So please don’t (mis)report like this.
    This will only spread panic among pilgrims.

    The Protector of the Cosmos needs no protection. The Prayer of the devotees can protect the monument of un-aging intellect- THE TEMPLE.

    The devotees should take the name of the lord ceaselessly as His name is the only savior.
    LOVE ALL, SERVE ALL
    HELP EVER, HURT NEVER

    In hindu/ Sanatan religion there are four main Dhama, among all of them Puri Dhama is major considered as per hindu mythology. So please cross check the report of A.S.I. with capable team of engineers if anything seems wrong, immediately proactively action is required to resolve this issue. This is not an issue it the question of our Astha too.

  10. vellanki dasaradhi says:

    Not only Puri temple, a number of temples of very old and archealogical importance have been neglected by the successive Governments past and present. In western countries historical buildings of recent are also protected with due care which is not done in India unless they are in dilapidated condition and a hue and cry is made by public.Governments and ASI should take immediate care of such temples by funding money on a large scale.
