About Puri Jagannath Temple, Hyderabad
Built by the Odia community, Shri Jagannath Temple is synonymous with the famous Rathyatra festival that pulls thousands of devotes from all over the world!
The spectacular red colour of the temple is credited to the 600 tonnes of red sandstone that was brought to Hyderabad from Odisha and is known to be an imitation of the famous Puri Temple in Odisha.
The temple is on Banjara Hills- one of the most beautiful sites in the city.
A walk inside the main shrine takes you to the beautiful idol of Lord Jangannath along with his brothers Balarama and Subhadra The whole complex also includes 5 temple shrines dedicated to Lord Ganesh, Lord Shiva, Goddess Bimala, Goddess Laxmi and Lord Hanuman. Do take time to notice the intricate carvings that cover every inch of the temple including the wooden carvings that depict the 9 incarnations of Lord Vishnu. The architecture of the place, however, does take the limelight with the main Shikhara (pinnacle on the temple) standing tall at a height of 70 feet!
If you are a spiritual person, you will love the ambience of the place and its sheer energy!
