Pilgrims Can Now Offer Phool Bungla Prayers In The Morning At Bankey Bihari Temple
So far, the Phool Bungla Seva was only allowed in the evening. But, following a Allahabad High Court order, pilgrims can now offer it to the temple's principal deity during the morning hours, Rajat Goswami, a sevakar (priest) of the temple, said.
"The seva was limited to the evening hours, roughly for 105 days, from ekadasi of the Chaitra month (first month of the Hindu calendar) to amavasya of Savan (fifth month of the Hindu calendar)," Goswami said.
The practice was allowed in the morning hours after the high court disposed of a 15-year-old case. The case was heard by the high court after a person challenged a order of a Mathura court that had allowed devotees to offer the sewa in the morning, the priest said.
Reacting to the order, the petitioner Gaurav Goswami said, he would challenge the order in the apex court, as the point raised by him wasnot properly taken into account.
