Sights to See
Sri Jagannath Temple
The sacred city Puri is widely known all over the world for the magnificent temple of Mahaprabhu Jagannath, the Lord of the World. The temple stands majestically in the centre of the city, which was built in the 12th -13th Century AD by Chodaganga Deva. Being the tallest temple (65 metres) in Odisha, it is one of the most magnificent pieces of monuments of India. In front of the main gate stands a 16 sided monolithic pillar (11 metres high), called Aruna Stambha which formally stood in front of the Sun Temple and was brought to Puri during the 18th century AD. The Eastern main entrance is guarded by two stone lions and is called the Lion Gate. There is a pillar crowned by an image of the Garuda. The gates on the other sides are flanked by statues of men on horseback, tigers and elephants respectively. Hence the name Tiger Gate, and elephant Gate. Apart from the main temple one can see within its precincts a host of other smaller temples including Asta Sambhu and Asta Chandi, Goddess Vishnu and innumerable Gods and Goddesses and the Ananada Bazaar, Snanab.
This temple is known as ‘Janak Puri’ because here, according to Puranic legend, the King Indradyumna performed the sacrifices and the Lords, Jagannath, Balabhadra and Subhadra Sudarsana appeared on the altar. During the car festival Lords spend nine days and there after they go back to their own Temple.
Purusottam Kshetra Puri has been said to be great ‘Bada’ i.e Bada danda, Mahapradad, Mahadipa, Mohodadhi, Bada panda, Bada thakura (deity), etc. Any body, therefore, who dies here straight goes to heaven and attains salvation ’MUKTI’.
