This temple is different from others because, here the idols of deities are not made with stone or metal but with wood of a selected tree and are changed every twelve years when adhika ashasda masa comes, with an elaborate ceremony called navakalebara.
Every year Famous Radhotsava takes place which is attended by lakhs of people.
Every day, 56 varieties of food are prepared in pots and offered to deities And this Jagannath prasadam one must take during visit.
Like wise many aspects of this temple are unique and one is very fortunate to have darshan of Lord.
One should not take mobile s or big hand bags as monkeys snatch and go up the gopuram.
Sometimes crowd is more sometimes very less.
If you want to get best out of your visit, engage one panda as guide on your first visit, he will give you all details and in the second visit you be on your own and explore 20 to 25 small shrines around main temple.
Have ten rupee notes to be offered.
Buy prasadam at office for 100 or 200 rupee s and offer to Lord and take home to be distributed.This will stay for 10 to 15 days.
Buy Anna prasadam in temple near kitchen for 50 rupees for person either share or consume then and there.It is as holy as Ganga jal.
Visit early morning and evening also.
Anna prasadam you will get only after 12 pm but dry prasadam from office any time.
Evening around 6 pm, flag changing ceremony is worth watching.
There many more things to know.One is really blessed to get the opportunity to visit this place.

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.
