during Temple Car Parade for the safety of people and the smooth journey of the Temple Car.

  • 1. Ensure there are no overhead cables or they are removed
  • 2. Ensure that there are no “ad” banners across the road which will block the temple car
  • 3. Ensure that there are no potholes on the TEMPLE CAR PATH (Road)
  • 4. Ensure that TEMPLE CAR ROAD is not slushy.
  • 5. Ensure that TEMPLE CAR ROAD has no traffic.
  • 6. Ensure that there are no vehicles parked on the temple car journey road
  • 7. Temple car should not be taken through narrow roads. There were instances when the chariot got stuck and even dashed against buildings
  • 8. Steep roads and roads with ups and downs to be avoided
  • 9. The temple car path’s culverts must be strong enough to bear the weight of the Temple Car
  • 10. People should avoid going near the temple car wheel, as there were several accidents.
  • 11. People who have consumed alchohol must be kept away from the wheels of the Temple Car
  • 12. Children should be kept far away from the temple car and its path
  • 13. Temple car fitness should be checked. There were accidents due to axle breaking
  • 14. The temple car should have balance. Height and breadth should be proportionate
  • 15. The temple car should have disc brake to stop it. When people pull it together , it will gain enormous speed and the very speed will make car wheel overrun them
  • 16. There should be public address system for guiding and directing people who pull the chariot. (giving commands like “START” & “STOP”)
  • 17. Sufficient sevaks must be there available until the car returns to its shed in the evening
  • 18. There should be sufficient volunteers to regulate and guide the crowd

All precautions listed here are also relevan for carrying the TEMPLE PALANQUIN on
