 The Jagannath Temple Management Committee has recommended allowing the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) to inspect the Ratna Bhandar (treasury) of the 12th century Jagannath Temple in Puri during the 2024 rath yatra.

This decision holds significance due to pressure on the Odisha government to open the treasury, believed to hold valuable jewellery and stones.

The Jagannath Temple in Puri is located on the eastern coast of Odisha. It is a significant Hindu temple devoted to Jagannath, a manifestation of Vishnu. The temple’s construction was initiated by King Indradyumna of Avanti in the Kalinga Architecture style and completed in 1161 CE.
