Jagannath Temple, Puri

4.2
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.

  • Best place on earth. Abode of Shree Jagannath. This place holds the beauty of art & culture of Orissa from centuries. One of the best Hindu temple. In a life time everyone should visit this place once at least neither you will miss the opportunity of meeting the living god on earth.
  • Age old Hindus most sacred worship place. Now maintaining the same urge to visit. Personally I visited 22 times and still I want to revisit. Now temple is under repair by Archeological Society Of India
  • Beautiful archaeological structure ... the pandas bug visitors and worshipers for money at every step.. pl beware of these people and one can complete the visit with out paying any extra money to these bullies. Enjoy the architecture.
  • 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.
  • Amazing temple, must visit place.Although if you are a non Odisha speaking person, you'll be conned to perform all sorts of Pooja and heavy sums of cash drained. If you're visiting this place, just be careful not to fall for anyone's tricks. Winter is the best time to visit the temple as temperatures are pleasant.

Where to stay in Puri

With Puri such a vital place of pilgrimage for Hindus across the world, and tourists keen to witness the festivities and engage with the history of the place, the city offers a good selection of accommodations to suit its varied list of visitors. In the dense collection of streets around the temple, a few guesthouses and hotels provide good access to the main urban points of interest. Down by the coast, you'll find a variety of hotels offering sea views, with budget options usually set a little further back from the golden sands than the upmarket choices.
