Wall Near Indradyumna Pond Collapses In Puri

Puri: Walls opposite to the entrance of the holy Indradyumna pond here collapsed on Sunday night and huge cracks appeared on adjacent road.
According to sources, at about 8 pm on Saturday night the wall collapsed and massive cracks appeared on adjacent road; which is a major lifeline for nearby residents. However, locals had to close it off, as its current condition is a death hole for anyone traversing it.
After incessant rains in August 2018, the eastern and southern walls of the pond had collapsed. Again, the north-side wall of Indradyumna pond had caved in during heavy rains in October 2018. Temporary service in the form of sandbags was provided to the walls but it faltered over time.
According to researchers, Indradyumna pond has close links with the Jagannath culture. Many devotees from across the country often take a dip in the holy pond during their visit to the city.
