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.

  • Best places to worship for Hindus. Its a Hindu temple with lots of amazing facts. I can not describe the beauty and mesmerizing view in words. One must visit thia temple.

  • Such a beautiful temple. Must visit. Phones not allowed inside. And the 'pandas' are all trying to make money. They will pull you for rituals and ask money anywhere from 200- thousands. If you are not willing to give, just say no or give a small amount as you wish. The prasad inside the temple is very nice. Took some for my family back home too.

  • The food is great if you can get it from the main kitchen and also get a good place for yourself to saviour it. The pundits here can be a bit messy unless you know the local language.If you go just to the temple administration run places, you will get some of the same services at cheaper costs. The parking lots are not that safe and are quite a but if distance from the main temple. The bus shuttle service is quite cheap to and from the temple to parking lot. In addition, there are a lot of autos, which can be rented. But overall, it will be an amazing religious and cultural experience if you steer clear of numerous cheats moving around to take your money.
