Unknown Facts About Lord Jagannath, Puri

The word "Jagannath" is the combination of two words "Jagat" and "Nath", Jagat means Universe & "Nath" means master or lord. So, Lord Jagannath is called "LORD OF UNIVERSE". The historic Jagannath temple (Shrimandira) at Puri was built in the year 1078. Today we are here to share some Unknown Facts About Lord Jagannath , see below.

1)The Sudarshan Chakra located at the top of the temple, from any place in puri you will find the chakra is facing you.

2) In the Jagannath temple kitchen 7 pots are kept one on top of another and cooked on firewood, through the process the contents in the top pot get cooked first and then the bottom one.

3) Flag on the top of temple always flaps in opposite direction of air.

4) Normally during day-time, air comes from sea to land and during evening, the vice-versa occurs. But in Puri it’s totally opposite.

5) No bird or planes fly above the Temple.

6) The shadow of the main dome is invisible at any time of the day.

7) After entering from Singhadwara’s first step (from inside of the Temple), you can’t hear any sound produced by the ocean. But, when you cross the same step (from outside of the Temple) you can hear it. This can be noticed clearly during evening.

8) The Ratha Yatra at Puri was initially performed with two sets of chariots (3 plus 3). As there was a river flowing in between Shrimandira and Gundicha (Mausi maa) temple, the first set of chariots were used to transport the Deities till the river, and then the Deities had to cross the river in three wooden boats and then board the other set of chariots to travel till the Gundicha (Mausi maa) temple.

9) The deities are buried from every 14 to 18 years, one above another, replaced by new ones. These deities are made up of metal and are believe to be disintegrated on their own.
