Earlier, they had invited Mahaparvhabu Lord Jagannath and Jagadguru Shankaracharya to Puri. The delegates started their journey on December 26 morning from Puri Jagannath Temple with the invitation of the Srimandir Parikrama Project inauguration.
One team will travel to various major ‘Deva Peethas’ across the state to distribute invitations, while another team will travel outside the state.
Notably, Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik introduced the Srimandir Heritage Corridor project to curb the challenges during the Rath Yatra in Puri in 2022.

The Srimandir Parikrama Project is well-equipped with resting places and greater public amenities; drinking water, toilets, and a cloakroom are being added and numerous other additions are provided for the devotees.
The open spaces inserted around the temple reduced the fear of any stampede and eased the flow of human traffic into the temple and then its exit.
Apart from that, security stations have been provided to enhance the safety and security of the devotees.
The devotees are deeply thankful to Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik for his visionary leadership in envisioning this massive transformation of the surroundings of Srimandir through the Srimandir Parikrama Project
