The city of Puri is not only famous for its oceanic vibes, but most importantly for its divine vibes. This place got popular just because of the temple of Lord Jagannath Swamy in the heart of the Puri. Millions of people visit this temple every year and at least thousands of people witness every single day. But we were unfortunately fortunate enough to make a plan for the city in the most happening season, that is on New year's eve. The rush on that particular day was above a million. As this temple is one of the Char Dhams (four most divine places of India introduced by Adi Shankaracharya), the flow of this place has been always heavy.
This temple gives goosebumps to every person who visits it and especially when they listen to the historical stories of this temple. This temple is considered as one of the most sacred places in India where Lord Jagannath, one of the forms of Lord Mahavishnu resides with his brother Balabhadra and sister Subhadra Devi. The temple mainly consists of these three siblings as deities and in the main temple, a person can witness other deity forms too in various decorations according to the occasion.
There are many stories revolve around this divine place and every story is one of a kind. Being established by a king in ancient days, it got developed by the preaching of Adi Shankaracharya and even escalated after him by the various rulers of India except for Moghuls. The government of Odisha is now taking good care of this temple and helps in hosting thousands of devotees every day.
