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.

Shri Jagannath Temple, Puri Reviews

  • 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.

  • A very very beautiful place. Unfortunately, photography was prohibited but you should go at least once to see it. A marvel of art, the stone has been painted over but still the new world paints cannot take away from the old world charm. The Temple is huge with several smaller temples surrounding it. All the areas are beautifully made, but if you look closely, you can recognize the passing of the years in the way the buildings are done. A must visit,

  • Shree Jagannath temple deals with the different architecture of history....... This temple is made up of big stones with historic carvings made on it. I visited this temple few days ago few weeks ago and it's awesome, I think it's the best place to spent quality time with family and friends......... I would also like if I have been given the opportunity to click photos inside the temple, although clicking photographs is strictly prohibited inside the temple. I also noticed that the temple is getting erroded day by day and working is continuing. Otherwise it's a good Temple..

  • The experience I had visiting this temple is unforgettable. However, one should be careful and clever about spending their money here. The garland of flowers and basal leaves are made daily in the night and the old one is distributed among the devotees. The red flag is also changed daily.

  • One of the famous Hindu temples of India, with rich history. Huge structure.. Blessed and happy that I got chance to visit the place. One discouraging thing is, it has become very much commercial. People asking money at every step. Wish Govt/tourist department takes some steps and put things in place.
