Lord Jagannath Temple,Hyderabad


Lord Jagannath , “The God of the Universe” 

Lord Jagannath Temple is located in the MLA colony of Hyderbad . It is one of the finest Jagannath temple in the world .It is said that this is a replica of original Jagannath Temple of Puri (Odisha) in context of design. The most attracting portion of this temple is its “Shikhara” (the peak/top) measuring around 70 feet in height. The red color of the temple is due to the usage of sand stone (around 600 tonnes were brought from Orissa which is being used to build this whole architecture) and around 60 stone carvers got the blessing to carve this temple. There are shrines dedicated to Lakshmi, along with Shiva, Ganesh, Hanuman and Navagrahas. The amorous sculptures are also found to represent the innermost feelings of human being and this explains to keep them outside the temple always while entering. The sanctum sanctorum houses Jagannath along with his siblings.
