(1,800+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site Tourist Spot
Admire the striking complex of Jagannath Temple, a Hindu temple dedicated to Jagannath, the Lord of the Universe. The current temple structure was built in 1161 by a local ruler, but it is believed that its origins date back more than 2,000 years. The main shrine, one of 120 temples within the complex, contains a wooden image of the presiding deity. Only Hindus are allowed onto the temple premises, but you can view the massive complex from the roof of a nearby library. A visit to Jagannath Temple represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Puri vacation builder to plot your vacation.
