About The Temple
Till the late 80's only the single god –Lord Jagannath was present in the sanctum sanctorium. As per a legend, two other wooden symbols that of Lord Balabhadra and Goddess Subhadra were seized by one leader of Bastar area and installed at a sanctuary in Jagadalpur and that of Lord Jagannth slipped from the elephant back midway and was recovered the following day. Presently the three divinities are worshiped from a gigantic platform, because of the enthusiasm of devotees and authorities who cut out two symmetrical wooden icons to renew the deadly misfortune. The wooden carvings on the sanctuary rooftop are a wonder to take a gander at. Different types of human and animal is seen on the wooden pillars. Feathered creatures, blossoms and other quality of craftsmanship and design cover every last bit of the rooftop. What is shown extravagantly on the stones somewhere else in the state is figured on wooden surface in this remote locale. This precious wealth is all around saved with a layer of shinning dark paint against the assaults of Time.
Rath Jatra is a well-known celebration in this sanctuary. Amid this celebration, the directing divinity Lord Jagannath alongside His senior sibling and more youthful sister move far from the sanctuary on a nine-day resort. Rath Jatra is still a greater celebration however just bound to a couple of townships or greater panchayats. Devotees drag them along a fundamental course on a wooden chariot (three chariots is the practice at the heartland-Puri). The Bahuda Jatra or the return car celebration denotes the end of the yearly jamboree.
