    It is really great to know all these wonders of Puri Jagannath Temple. I belong to this place of Odisha, and every year I used to visit Jagannath temple. There are many wonders apart from this which are unaware to us. Many tales are being said by the natives of Puri and the temple priests (Pujari/Panda in Odia).
    1. The Sudarshan Chakra is 20ft in height and weighs more than a ton.
    2. The temple height is about 40 storied building, where the priest easily climbs without any lift to change the flag.
    3. Every year before Rathayatra, new chariots were built by the temple carpenters. Since the beginning, they never used any measuring tapes in any construction.

    Wow what a nice way to say the glory of Puri Jaganadha Temple and frankly speaking for the first time I came across such facts and that is inducing me to visit this great historic place which is considered one of the 108 divya shetrams in India. Thanks.

    This is an excellent thread supported by the response of Mr. Behera. The ancient Puri Temple was built following various known and unknown rules of 'Bastu'. There are many inexplicable lores associated with the temple.

    Let's pay our respect to Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra and Devi Subhadra.
