Puri...... ‘Srikshetra’ – Lord of the Universe. As the sun rises over the boundless Bay of Bengal, the massive stretch of sea by the sacred city of Puri, vest-clad fishermen toss their sturdy dinghies onto the sturdy waters. The radiant star, unburdened by the tasks of the day, spares the red smile for you. Patitapaban, the sacred flag atop the Jagannath Temple, flutters in the robust morning breeze. The wide Bada Danda, the road which leads upto the majestic temple, provides the view of the grandness of scale & proportion that typifies Puri. This is also the path to Nirvana, where the chariots of the much-loved siblings, Jagannath, Subhadra & Balabhadra, roll down in the famous annual Rath Yatra, which inspires awe & draws tumultuous crowds. 

In Puri, everything has to be big. The main road is called Bada Danda, or Grand Road; the sea is Mahodadhi, or the widest ocean; the bhog is called Mahaprasad, or the great Prasad. Is it any wonder then, that the Lord of the Universe, Jagannath, presides here?

 

Extending over five ‘kosas’ (approx 16 km), Puri resembles a right oriented conch shell. The ‘Dakshinavarta Sankha’, which is why it is called the Sankha Kshetra. Originally, Jagannath was secretly worshipped as Nila Madhava by a Sabara chief. Indradhumma, the king of Malwa, an ardent devotee of Vishnu, wished to see the Lord in his most perfect form. He was told in his dream that the deity could be seen thus in Utkala, as Odisha was originally known. Thus the Odisha style temple of awesome grandeur, the shrine of Jagannath was born & stands on a raised platform & soars to a height of 213 ft, dominating the ladscape for miles around. Only Hindus are allowed inside the temple.
