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.

  • a visit to the temple for non-Hindus is taboo! Please first to accept this! However, let the whole atmosphere around the temple and in the side streets or on the road cars unwanted! work on - who here so thence pulls as he arrived, which was previously already dead... (by analogy, of course!) Conclusion - spiritual high point in Orissa - in the land of Lord Jagannaths, Balubadra, and Subrada (brother & sister)

  • The temple is Wonderful example of our culture. Here are many incidents that surprise science. This place is full of archaeological relations. This temple is most iconic temple for Hindus. Excellent experience of visiting the temple, especially the flag changing ritual. You must go to this place once in life.
  • This temple is a wonderful example of our culture and tradition. This place is full of archaeological relations. Here are many incidents that surprise science. It is the center of spirituality and architecture. This place is of great importance in Indian culture. You must go to this place once in life.
  • No doubt it is one of the best place. It is also included in four dhamas of India. Many amazing facts are there behind it. But the priests are not good. And now a days the glory of the temple is commercialized. That is worst thing about the temple. Government should look after it. Otherwise everything is good...
  • Visiting the temple is a wonderful experience. Before entering the temple you have to keep your shoes, mobile, camera, food to some counter outside the temple. Try to visit the temple in early morning like 7am. Inside the temple there are lots of places to visit like where bhog is prepared, where God takes his bath, from where water is taken etc. The temple has four gates on four sides (North, East, South, West).
  • 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.
