Dating back to 1563, Jaganath (Krishna) Temple lures visitors and devotees with its immaculate architecture and enticing erotic carvings. The sanctuary stands on a three-tiered platform, built from wood and bricks in traditional pagoda style. In the corners see four miniature versions of the temple, all five enshrining Surya, Ganesha, Vishnu, and Bhagavati. Look out for the multi-headed and multi-armed crowned deities wearing ornate jewelry found on the struts of the temple. On the eastern side of the temple, the doors open for devotees to pay respect to their deities.
