Special dress code for the Baidhyanath Dham temple staff members and volunteers

The Deoghar district administration has come up with a special dress code for the staff members of the Baidhyanath Dham temple management board and volunteers to enable them to help millions of pilgrims in any emergency and protect them from anti-social elements like pickpockets on the temple premises.
The new system will not only help the devotees in distress but also help keeping anti-social elements, who target people in the garb of volunteers, away from the temple premises. The volunteers will wear saffron kurtas and yellow dhoti.

Each year at least 20 lakh devotees visit the temple during Shravan month, considered pious to the Hindus. The anti-social elements target devotees and cheat them. At times they even take away their valuables.
This dress code will help the devotees who come from across the globe instantly identify the staff and volunteers and inform them for any kind of help.
The dress code will be implemented form this year's Sharvani Mela (July-August). The management has already placed order for stitching the dress.

Baidhyanath temple popularly known as Baba Dham among the masses is one of the 12 Jyotirlings, the most sacred abodes of Shiva. The temple complex is consisting of the main temple of Baba Baidhyanath, where the Jyotirling is installed, and 21 other temples.
