Puri: The repair work of the main prayer hall of the Jagannath temple, the Jagamohan, by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) will resume soon.

The preliminary work in this regard has started on Tuesday.

It is noteworthy to mention that, the repair work at the Jagmohan of the 12th century Jagannath temple of the temple was halted because of the dispute between the temple administration and the ‘Chhatisa Nijog’, the body of sevayats of the Puri temple .

The dispute came up after the temple administration questioned the stand of the ‘Chhatisa Nijog’ to oppose the repair work by the ASI and asked to clarify its legal sanctity.

Now, the ‘Chhatisa Nijog’, has assured the temple administration to cooperate to complete the repair work.
