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
The temple is beautiful - colorful and well-done. I was welcomed at each shrine. Other visitors, all appeared to be Indian, were blessed. (Blessings only for Hindus) The floor is black marble with scattered white squares. This matters because you have to remove your shoes to enter, and the black tiles got very hot - hard to step on them. Tip: bring thick socks. There aren't many places to sit and little protection from the sun. This beautiful, warm (feeling) and well-maintained temple was a pleasure to visit, but lingering would be difficult.
Absolutely amazing atmosphere here at the temple. Very clean, very well maintained, well managed. The architecture of the temple, the murals, wall paintings are great. Parking is bit of a problem, especially on Pooja days. The temple also organizes spiritual talks often by saints. Visit for peace of mind..
Unfortunately when we reached here main temple was closed but we were allowed to go inside. There is parking space for about 10 cars. Main temple is on first floor where you can sit and enjoy calmness. Perfect place to feel spirituality and enjoy prasadam.
Great temple.. everyone should visit.. sufficient car parking place is not available and have to park on the road side
The temple is exactly same the actual Jagannath temple in puri. The best part is the walls of the temple where you can find the carvings with POP (plaster of paris) of all the gods and there life. Actually I loved the location of temple. Very peaceful place in the middle of the chaos of Banjara hills and Jubilee hills. Regular functions are organized here. Good parking space for both 2 and 4 wheelers.
