Hello All,

Myself Deepak Kumar Nayak, from Cuttack, Odisha.

Before writing anything, I would like to apologize if this article has some grammatical mistakes as I am not a professional writer nor I am so strong at English.

Different people have different hubbies of their own. I too have a hubby of mine and my hubby is bit religious. I like to travel from place to place to get information about my great God- Lord Jagannath. Most of the time, I make my journey alone and I use my Herohonda Glamour bike to travel. I seldom take my father with me to accompany me in my journey. It would be good, if I share you the name of all the Jagannath temples of odisha those I already covered during my yearís long journey. So below is the list.

1- Jagannath Temple, Puri
2- Jagannath Temple, Nilagiri, Balasore
3- Kunja Bihari Temple, Gada Kujanga, Jagatsinghpur
4- Baldev Jew Temple, Kendrapara
5- Jagannath Temple, Dharakote, Ganjam
6- Jagannath Temple, Khalikote, Ganjam
7- Jagannath Temple, Nayagarh
8- Jagannath Temple, Khandapara
9- Jagannath Temple, Mantridi, Ganjam
10- Jagannath Temple, Jaipur
11- Sabara Srikhetra, Koraput
12- Raghunath Jew Temple, Puri Ghat, Cuttack
13- Jagannath Temple, Buguda Ganjam
14- Jagannath Temple, Ranapur, Nayagarh
15- Mahima-mani Jagannath Temple, Tigiriagarh, Cuttack
16- Jagannath Temple, Athagarh town, Cuttack
17- Balaram Temple, Dhenkanal
18- Jagannath Temple, Garei, Jagatsinghpur
19- Jagannath Temple, Chandini Chowk, Cuttack
20- Trutiya Dev Temple, Subarnpur, Cuttack

My current post is about the last and latest Jagannath temple which I visited. The temple is called the Tritiya Deva Temple and it is located in the Subarnapur village of Cuttack District. Subrnapur is a small village located very nearer to Athagad NAC of Cuttack. It is in the out-skirt of lake Anshupa. I came to know about this temple from Government of Indiaís Archaeological website. The temple around 12km distance from the main town of Athagada.

When I reached this temple it was about 5.30pm in the evening and the temple was closed. So I had to call the temple priest who resides near by to have a Darshan of the deities. There are beautiful images of Lord Jagannath, Balabhadra and Subhadra made of Nim wood.

The temple architecture is very old. The priest suggested me that the temple was built in the 14th century by the kings of Eastern Ganga dynasty. Perhaps the 3rd king of the Ganga dynasty had built this temple and thatís why it is named as Tritiya Deva temple.

I took some snapshots in my mobile of this beautiful temple. I am posting some of them.

For me in architecture sense, it is the 2nd best in odisha after the great temple of Puri. My sincere request to readers to suggest me some other Jagannath temple having rich architecture of Kalingan type if they know. Please donít suggest any temple out of the above 20 listed.

If anybody, wants to know more details about any of the temples mentioned above then please reply me here on this thread. I would be glad to give more info.

Thank you all and JAI JAGANNATH.
