Good temple - the path is labyrinthine ensuring that you visit everywhere, before you are allowed to come out Alternative Name: Masira Ghara (Oriya), MAsir Badi (bengali) - meaning house of the maternal Aunt Lengend1: The Original Jagannath Temple was commissioned by King Indradumnya. And the Architect was celestial engineer Viswakarma. the queen of King Indradumnya was queen Gundicha. Legend2: Goddess Gundicha (local goddess worshipped to cure small pox) (gundi - Oriya; may have been derived from Guti - bengali) is considered maternal Aunt of Sri Krishna. There are other legends too - please look them up in wikipedia. This place is also prohibited for cameras - for some unknown reason.
An extremely horrible place. Live example of temple priests begging in the temple premises for money. Forcible extraction of money from devotees, reducing their freedom to pray.
Excellent temple. Very nice to visit Gundicha Temple (Mausi Bari of Sri Jagannath, Balaram and Subhadra). BEWARE of Panda and Pujaris inside this temple. They always try to forcefully collect money from pilgrims visit here. Just stay alert and never accept anything offered by them.
Beautiful temple.. but beware from pandas they asking for money. This temple is only for Hindus.
These temples put other Hindu temples of India in bad light as few priests forcibly ask money after giving Prasad like bangles which forces a devotee to return it back and immediately feel sorry for condition of the temple.
