We need better waste management techniques and tools at the Jagannath Temple in Odisha's Puri, says Aravind Agrawal, Collector, Puri, and Deputy Chief Administrator. From November 1, 2016, strict penalties will be levied on people littering the Jagannath Temple, he adds. The temple is one of the 10 iconic locations we're aiming at cleaning-up in partnership with the government's Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. An important pilgrimage destination for Hindus and a part of the Char Dham pilgrimage, the Jagannath Temple is famous for its annual Rath Yatra. The temple attracts over 2.5 million devotees every year.
