Some facts about the Jagannath Temple Puri are as under 1. Flag Dhwaj of the temple flows against the direction of the wind. 2. Generally at sea coast wind flows from sea to earth in day time and in the evening from earth to sea. But this is reversed in the case of Puri. 3. You will not find any bird flying above the Puri temple. 4. The shadow of the domes is not visible in Puri Temple. 5. The wheel Sudarshan Chakra above the temple is felt that it is nearby from any part of Puri. 6. The prasad is prepared in vessels kept one above the other 7 heights the food in top vessels get ready first then 2nd from top and so on. 7. The moment you enter the main gate of the temple you will not hear the sound of sea waves but as you come out of the main gate you will hear again. Hope these will be enough rest you can know when you will visit personally. Regards

There is a ritual older than many civilizations. A priest climbs the dome of the temple which stands as tall as a 45 story building and changes the flag everyday since 1800 years as a part of a ritual. If it is not changed any day the temple must be shut for the next 18 years.

There is an annual Chariot Festival held at Puri and it is performed with 2 sets of chariots 3 in each set . As there is a river flowing in between the Jagannatha Temple and Mausi Maa temple the first set of chariots used to bring the deity`s to the river and then the deity`s will be ferried across the river using 3wooden boats and are then placed in the second set of chariots to reach the Mausi Maa temple.
