Jagannath Temple

The Jagannath Temple in Puri is a famous Hindu temple dedicated to Jagannath (Vishnu). The temple is an important pilgrimage destination for many Hindu traditions, particularly worshippers of Krishna and Vishnu. The temple is famous for its annual Rath Yatra (chariot festival) in which the three main temple deities-Jagannath, Balabhadra and Subhadra-are hauled on huge and elaborately decorated temple cars. Non-hindus are not allowed at the Jagannath Temple, however, they may view the complex from the roof of the nearby Raghunandan Library.
