The story of Mahesh Jagannath temple is an intersting one. According to one of the legends, a Bengali sadhu called Drubananda Brahmachari was once denied the chance to offer `bhog` to Lord Jagannath. Dejected the sage went on a fast until death. On the third day Jagannath came in his dreams and told him to make the idols of Balarama, Jagannath and Subhadra with daru-brahma (neem trunk). The lord also wanted to have `bhog` from his disciple. The sage then returned to Mahesh to make the idols from the daru-brahma he found one night.
