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!

Very beautiful place and super clean. Do visit this place and enjoys the beautiful temple in the heart of the city. There is few issue with parking and there is no wheelchair access. Best time to visit is evening and early morning.
The temple said to be replica of Jagannath Puri temple and it has great ambience! It's very spacious and has paintings depicting lord Krishna life all around. Early mornings or late evenings are peaceful here since you can sit by and spend sometime in the premises. Apart from lord Jagannath there are small temples built for multiple other Gods! They have good parking space outside and great place to click pictures as well
Nice place with respect to devotion and acquiring mental peace. Cool atmosphere, temple ambience, pegions roaming around gives us positive vibes and makes mind pleasant. Morning early hours is the best time to visit.
Cleanliness is given priority here. We all know this is next to godliness. So it's peaceful place to spend some time
Its a beautiful replica. The maintenance is decent. Hassle free darshan on most of the days. Many entries make it easier for people to enter the complex. But during day time, the flooring gets too hot. Carpets are placed but they are insufficient and not placed around the whole temple. Sadly the prasad is not made in the authentic manner.
