The temple is a architectural marvel. It is must see place all Hindus. Problems are nearness, inefficient crowd management. The temple itself is a marvel with intricate carvings and sculpturing. If the crowd management in off season is not good then it will be much worse during the chariot festival.

The roads leading to the temple is wide but encroached by hawkers. There is a safe keeping place for the mobiles and chappalas/shoes. Photography also is not allowed.

Had a very good Darshan standing in the regular queue.

Very famous hindu temple. This is ancient hindu temple. Peaceful place with lpts of ancient craft across the temple. Important points to note are: you cant carry mobile and bags inside. Need to keep outsideat some outlets which charges for keep your valuables. Inside you will find lots of panda. Be careful while dealing with them. Atlast good hindu religious place to visit

The place as expected is not very clean and organised. Fortunately we could find a Panda to help us out who arranged the visit. In all we had to shell out about RS. 6oo and we did get receipt for about Rs 500 and also some Prasadam. Little of the prasadam we carried back to Bangalore. In all it was an hour activity and we did like the deity of Jagannath. Even though it was my 3rd trip, it is this time I could see the deity better and we spent about 6 minutes watching the deity.

We did not have a pleasant experience at all. There is a lot of asking for money at all points which leaves you with a sense of
being cheated. The queues are not well managed. The security guards both male and female keep pushing you and pulling u by the arm. Very irritating. The pandas stalk you till you take one as a guide. The mobiles and cameras have to be kept in lockers and then you walk towards the eastern gate the main entrance and keep shoes in another place.
Inside the main temple you have to again buy a ticket to go to the main sanctum . The queue there is terrible with everybody jostling. After that the pandas tap you with two sticks and ask for money, the other pandas thrust tulsi meals at you.
When u finally get the darshan, which is fantastic but u are totally distraught and frustrated.
You exit the temple on the northern gate and walk bare feet for about 10/15 minutes on dirty dusty street till u reach ur shoe stand.
Maybe we had a bad experience because it was a Sunday. So if you are a devotee and very keen to visit, avoid weekends and peak afternoons when it's hot!
