Puri Jagannath Temple - Review
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! Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Hyderabad itinerary 2 days.

Puri Jagannath Temple, Hyderabad Reviews
Great architecture and lighting. It is a fairly new temple, so didn't really get an authentic feel.. But the temple is clean and maintained exceptionally well.. Tourists can visit this place.. and if u are a local, it's a must visit as it's in the heart of the city
Well maintained and easy on the eye architecture. The temple premises make a good place to reflect on your thoughts. The staff here are helpful. However there are no lifts and no wheelchair entrances. Ensure that you have pre-booked your commute when you visit because getting a ride back to your hotel or house will be a problem otherwise.
Nice one to visit. Golden light view of temple can be seen if visited in the evenings. The problems we faced were 1. The shiny floor was sliperry and wet and 2. Lack of proper toilet facilites for kids and elderly people. When we as a family visited on a rainy day, some of us slipped and fell down. Also, few of us had to go to loo and found the toilets underground in the next building. While more money is spent on aesthetic effects, it would be better if the temple-trust considers devotees' convenience & safety aspects as well.
Inspite of being in the middle of a busy location,the place brings in a certain level of calmness into you. You will feel like keep coming back to it, again and again. Those who are from odisha, this place will surely make you feel nostalgic.
This temple is one of the best temple I have seen. this temple is open from 6 o clock to 12 o clock and from 4 o clock to 9 o clock. There are plays to see at this place in the night on public holidays and on Sunday's. This is one of the best place to visit.
