பூரி ஜெகன்நாதர் கோவிலின் வியப்பூட்டும் வரலாறு

In this post we are going to know the history of Puri Jagannath Temple and the events that take place in the temple.

 Puri Jagannath Temple is a Vaishnava temple located on the Puri coast of Odisha.  It is the largest temple in the state of Orissa.  The tower of the temple is 713 feet high and is the largest tower in Orissa.  Puri is one of the four holy Vaishnava shrines of India, namely Dwarka, Badrinath and Rameshwaram.

 The temple is shaped like a palace and is a huge temple with four gates, the Lion's Gate on the east, the Vairakkiya Gate on the west, the Elephant's Gate on the north and the Horse's Gate on the south.  These are called Simhatuvar, Hastuvar, Hastiduvar and Vyakratuvar.  The present Puri Temple was built in the 12th century by the kings of the Sodaganga dynasty

 The grandson of Rajendra Chola's son built the perimeter wall of the Sodaganga temple.  The wall is 200 meters long and 65 meters high.

 In this temple, Jagannath, Bala Rama and Subhadra Devi are all blessed from the same sanctum sanctorum.  The idol of Balarama is six feet high, the idol of Jegannath is five feet and the idol of Subhadra is four feet.  All three are on display in white, black and yellow.  The temple is unique in that it is carved out of the wood of the originals and consecrated once in 12 years.  And these three statues are worshiped at the headquarters in an imperfect form.

 It is necessary to know the history of Itala to know why the incomplete original idols made of wood are dedicated and worshiped in this temple.  So you can learn about the history and then the miracles that take place in this place.

  King Indrathuyman then ruled over Puri.  In the dream of the king, Perumal ‘Puri’ disappeared saying that he had to carve his idol with an object floating in the sea.  So in order to carry out Perumal's order, he sent his troops to the shores of Puri to fetch whatever object was floating in the sea.  After a long wait, the guards took the big log that was floating in the sea and handed it over to the king. The king performed the poojas on the log and ordered the carpenters to make a statue of Perumal. 

 When the carpenter put the chisel on that tree to make the statue, the chisel broke.  At the moment the king considered this an omen.  Lord Vishnu will come as a carpenter in the role of an old man.  Appeared before the king in the guise of an old carpenter.  The king did not realize that it was Perumal who had come.  The elderly Thatcher asked the king to complete the work in 21 days and that no one should open the room until he had finished his work.  The king agreed.  Work continued for 15 consecutive days in one room.  The chisel noise was also heard outside while working.  With that noise everyone knew that work was going on in the room. 

 But the king thought that the sculptor had fallen asleep because of the noise for the next three days, and the king hurriedly opened the door to find out what was going on inside.  Thus the Lord, who came in the form of a carpenter, became angry with the king for not fulfilling his vow.  The statues were half-carved because there were still three days left.  You opened this door without looking at the old carpenter, King Perumal. 

 Thus the idols dedicated in this temple are only half as good.  Dedicate it as it is.  Devotees who come to see this will go with the idea that they should not rush into anything and should exercise patience.  Perumal, who was in the role of the old man, disappeared after saying that.  Realizing his mistake, the king half-carved Jagannath, Balarama and Sumitra and consecrated the three idols. 

 But the temple built by King Indrathuyman at this place has fallen into disrepair over time.  Since then many temples have been built on the site.  But those temples also sank in the sea.  The present Puri Jagannath Temple was started by Ananthavarman in 1135 and completed in 1200 by his grandson Anangapi Mathew.  

This is a temple built according to the Pancharatha system.  Like Dwarka, this temple is located on the beach.  It is also surrounded by the rivers Bhargavi Sarvatirtha Mahi and looks like the beautiful Dakshinavarthi Valam Puri Sangam.  Devotees worship Jagannath by swimming in the sea as the sea area where this place is located is found to be shallow.  It is famous for the worship of Adisankar, Ramanujar, Sri Mathwar and Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. 

Here 56 types of offerings are made to the Lord.  Here Jagannath with black eyes and big eyes represents the form of Vishnu representing the Sama Veda and Balarama with white and lotus eyes represents Rig Veda and the form of Shiva.  Subhadra Yajur with yellow and lotus eyes is referred to as the Vedic aspect of power.
