Lingaraj Temple Staff
The priests at Lingaraj temple come from two groups – Brahman Nijog, and Badu Nijog. The Badu Nijog are servant staff whose lineage and history can’t be fully ascertained.
The temple itself, given its age and historical significance is run by the Temple Trust Board of India and the Archaeological Survey of India.
The temple gets around 6,000 visitors a day, but at its peak, such as during the festival of Shivratri, this can rise up to around 200,000!
