Although long two and half years have passed, the famous Gundicha temple of Puri in Odisha is yet to be reopened for devotees. It has been learnt that the temple will not open even by the end of this year due to repairing work. However, it has become a setback for the devotees.
It has been seen that daily devotees come to Gundicha temple, but as the temple is shut, they pay obeisance from outside and returning back without visiting inside the temple. The temple has been opened only once a year for the last two years during the nine days of Rath Yatra.
