One of the most sacred pilgrimage sites for Hindus, Puri also known as Jagannath Puri, is located in the state of Odisha. Famous for the Jagannath temple, Puri is believed to be the final resting place of Lord Vishnu. Unsurprisingly then, it is a very important place of worship for the Hindus. Completing the golden triangle of Odisha along with Konark and Bhubaneshwar, Puri is a large depository of art and architecture of India with the highlight of the town being the Shree Jagannath Puri Temple. One of the four dharms (most sacred pilgrimages) of Hindus, the Jagannath Puri temple was constructed in the 11th century and is the starting point for the famous Rath Yatra from which the English language derived the word ?juggernaut?. During the Rath Yatra, in July, entry to the town and the temple is restricted to Hindus. Make sure you lean against the Shani temple, watch its summit and taste the food served. It is possible to get into the sanctum and touch the deities in the main temple for a minimum fee.
