about jagannath temple

A must visit place if not for religious inclinations, then for its architectural magnificence, Jagannath Temple is indeed a sight to behold. It is constructed by a group of Oriya workers, who wished to replicate the architecture of the Jagannath temple in Puri. The peak of the temple reaches 21.3m in height. The temple complex is tinted in the shade of burnt brick, because of the use of sandstone brought from Orissa. More than 600 tonnes of sandstone was used to build the entire temple, and around 60 stone carvers were brought in to work on it.

Though the main deity is Jagannath (the main deity of the Oriya people) along with his siblings Balabhadra and Subhadra, there are separate shrines for Goddess Laxmi, Lord Shiva, Lord Ganesha and the Navagrahas. Rathyatra, the main festival of Orissa, is celebrated in a big way at the Jagannath Temple of Puri. Hence, the annual Rath Yatra festival is also celebrated at this temple, during which the three main deities are carried out as a grand procession with a lot of pomp and show.
