About Shri Jagannath Temple, Puri

Jagannath Temple in Puri is a well-known, sacred Hindu Temple devoted to Jagannath. The construction of this temple began under the reign of King of Kalinga. Legend says that Jagannath was actually worshiped by a Savar king, Nella Madhaba. The entire temple complex covers around 400,000 square feet area.

Inside the complex, there are four distinct structures:

  • Garba Griha or Vimana or Deula
  • Mukhashala
  • Nata Mandir or Natamandir
  • BhogaMandapa

Apart from the main temple, there are many other minor temples located inside the premise. They are:

  • Vimala Temple – Where the feet of Goddess Sati fell.
  • Mahalakshmi Temple - Where naivedya that is offered to Lord Jagannath is prepared.
  • Kanchi Ganesh Temple – This temple is dedicated to Lord Ganesha.

Visit this temple premise during RathYatra, when the whole temple is decked up and the three deity of the temple: Lord Jagannath, Lord Balaram and Goddess Subhadra are brought out and taken on a chariot ride. And the site is worth watching.

Other than the festival, the everyday bhog (god’s food) is said to be another reason for which thousands of visitors visit the temple.

It is the center of spirituality and architecture. This place is of great importance in Indian culture. You must go to this place once in life.

  • No doubt it is one of the best place. It is also included in four dhamas of India. Many amazing facts are there behind it. But the priests are not good. And now a days the glory of the temple is commercialized. That is worst thing about the temple. Government should look after it. Otherwise everything is good...

  • Visiting the temple is a wonderful experience. Before entering the temple you have to keep your shoes, mobile, camera, food to some counter outside the temple. Try to visit the temple in early morning like 7am. Inside the temple there are lots of places to visit like where bhog is prepared, where God takes his bath, from where water is taken etc. The temple has four gates on four sides (North, East, South, West).

  • one of the most important temples of the Hindus that make up most of the nation’s population. The temple supposedly has mystical powers which grant wishes to people wishing with a pure heart to do well. The Puri temple has several amazing qualities that make it an interesting place to visit apart from the religious affection that people have about the temple itself. Also, the state of Odisha is one of those states that attract millions of visitors every year for its religious affiliation with several beliefs and also a great place for food lovers.
