Jagannath temple

1 save

Puri, India • Memory • 

Dedicated to Lord Vishnu, the Jagannath temple is an important pilgrimage site for the Hindus, many of whom converge at the town for the annual chariot festival held in the months of June-July. Many miracles are associated with the temple. It is said that the flag on top of the temple blows against the wind; no birds or planes fly atop the temple and before the traffic sounds spoiled everything it was said that you couldn't hear the ocean once inside the temple. But the amazing thing about the temple is the food that is cooked for the devotees. Around 56 varieties of food are cooked everyday as per the traditions laid down centuries back. No foreign product is used and the food is cooked in pots placed one atop the other in one go and the food placed on the top gets cooked first! Sadly, non Hindus are not allowed inside the temple but they can view the temple and get a glimpse of the lord from the outside.
