Jagannath is the lord of the universe, incarnation of Vishnu.
This deity is the more popular in Orissa, very distinctive with large white eyes and black chest, usually accompanied by his brother Balbhadra and sister Subhadra.
Built in 1198, in this big temple working 400 cooks and 20.000 people depend on it for livelihood.
Every day arrive there thousends pilgrims, but it is closed to non-Hindus.
It is the center of the one most important anual festival in India, the Rath Yatra.
