Jagannath Temple, Puri

11

The Jagannath Temple, one of the biggest and most famous temples of Odisha, is located in the coastal town of Puri. Countless devotees have visited the place in search of solace offered by the triad of the Jagannath Temple—Lord Jagannath (Lord of the Universe as the name suggests), Lord Balabhadra and Goddess Subhadra. The temple, with its magnificent aura, can take you to the classical era.

The tinkling bells, the stupendous 65-feet-high pyramid structure, the engraved walls with every detail carefully carved, the pillars depicting Lord Krishna’s life—all this and more draw lakhs of devotees every year towards the Jagannath Temple. The Jagannath Temple has the highest number of visitors during the Rath Yatra or the chariot festival which is organised every year. During the time, adorned chariots carrying idols of Lord Jagannath, Subhadra and Balabhadra are taken to the Gundicha Temple and are brought back to the Jagannath Temple.
