An adobe of God Jagannath – The Lord of the Universe – Puri is one of the most sacred pilgrim centers in India. This enlivening city is located on the Eastern coast of the Bay of Bengal, and is considered among the ‘Char Dhams’ for the Hindus.

However, its beautiful beaches offer great scenic vistas and a range of water activities to the visitors. Owning to its unique location, visitors can see the splendid views of both sunrise and sunset from the beach.

According to the Hindu myths, Puri is the adobe of Lord Vishnu, hence is a major draw of Hindu pilgrims who come here to pray at the Jagannath Temple and to be the part of holy ‘Rath Yatra’ that takes place every year in the month of June/July. The main temple of Lord Jagannath is believed to be constructed by King Anangabhima in 12th century. Nevertheless, the construction was started by one of his forefathers named ‘Chora Ganga Deva’. Built on an elevated ground, the temple is around 65 meters high, and is enclosed by two rectangular walls, which were constructed in 15th or 16th century. On the top of the temple, there is a wheel made of an alloy of eight different metals. This colossus temple is beautifully designed and painted on its walls. In fact, along with a sense of spirituality, Jagannath Temple is an excellent example of architectural beauty.
