Ban Imposed on Inappropriate Video Creation at Udaipur Temple


GG News Bureau
Gomati, 12th April. 
The district magistrate’s office in Gomati, Rajasthan, has banned the production of short videos and reels that disrespect the sanctity of the Tripura Sundari temple in Udaipur. The official order for the ban was issued on Thursday.

Authorities have warned that strict penalties will be imposed on those who violate this administrative order.

The Tripura Sundari shrine is one of the 51 Shakti Pithas located in various parts of India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Tibet, Bhutan, and Sri Lanka.

This issue arose after a few short videos, also known as reels, went viral on social media platforms, showing performers engaging in highly objectionable behavior.

The official order, written in Bengali, states that creating video clips or reels with obscene songs and dances, featuring the temple’s sanctum sanctorum in the background, and sharing them on social media could be seen as offensive to those connected with the temple.
Such actions will be severely punished under the appropriate criminal law. Therefore, everyone is instructed to refrain from such behavior.

The Tripura Sundari temple, also known as Kurma Pith, resembles a tortoise in shape. The temple’s structure appears to be a modified Buddhist Stupa at first glance.

The temple faces west, with the main entrance also located in the west, although there is a narrow entrance in the north. While the influence of medieval Bengal Char Chaala temple architecture is evident, the unique blend at this location allows Tripura to claim it as its own architectural style.

The temple features a square sanctum with a typical Bengali hut-like structure and a conical dome. A stamp featuring the Tripureswari temple was issued in September 2003 to recognize its heritage. To the east of the temple lies Kalyan Sagar, a lake where large fish and tortoises live peacefully together. The temple is situated approximately 3 km south of Udaipur town and is commonly known as the Tripura Sundari or Matabari temple.

Maharaja Dhanya Manikya established the Tripura Sundari Temple in 1501. Initially built for Lord Vishnu, the temple later housed the idol of Mata Tripurasundari, made of Kasti stone from Chittagong, Bangladesh, following a dream revelation. It is considered one of the 51 Shakti Peethas.

According to Hindu mythology, Peethasthans are places where the body parts of Devi Sati fell. The Pithamala Grantha states that Sati’s right foot fell here during Lord Shiva’s Tandava Dance.
