Shri Jagannath Temple - Review

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

  • Good place to visit with family but beware of the 'panda's around as they will take you for a ride for your money. The work of the temple is very beautiful. Sacred place for Hindus which was established by Adi Sankaracharya. Don't forget to visit the temple kitchen where they prepare varieties of food.

  • Always an awesome place to visit. The place is so peaceful that even if you are an atheist you will start believing in the presence of an external force. The most beautiful thing to see here is the kitchen where they cook meals for the Lord. The cooks never speak. Thousands of meals are created by only one fireplace. It's outstanding. Alas photoshoot is not allowed inside the temple. But to all the foreigners or anyone who are visiting here do go see the temple kitchen. A small price you will have to pay for the ticket. But it's awesome.

  • Very nice place to visit with family and kids. Its quite clean & graceful environment. Just behind the main Street. Location is too good to reach here. The construction of this Temple is very nice. The premises of the temple is kept very clean. You find a peaceful & delightful place here . evening time is a little bit crowded...but in the evening it looks really awesome. This Temple is an architectural master-piece . It's famous all over the world for it's construction. Must visit.

  • The place is very spiritual it is temple of Lord Krishna. The architectural beauty of temple is very good there. It attracts many tourists not only from India but from foreign countries also. The place is having a market area near it. The puri sea beach is also in the walking distance from there.

  • The structure of temple is awesome and wonderful. It is the one of the four dham of Hindu. The design of architecture is very old like 800 to 900years old. It is the best place to visit our friends and family.. It is international place and there are many different types of places. The foreigners are gathered per day for piece mind.
