The historic JAGANNATH TEMPLE at Puri was built in the year 1078, and renovated to its present form in the year 1174.
The flag atop the temple always flaps in the opposite direction of air.
From any place in Puri you will always find the Sudarshan Charka (Charka at top of Temple) facing you. Normally during day-time, air comes from sea to land & during evening, the vice-versa occurs. But in Puri it’s totally opposite. No bird or planes fly above the temple.
The shadow of the main dome is invisible at any time of the day. The quantity of cooked food inside the Temple remains same for the entire year. But that same quantity of prasadam can feed few thousand people & 20 lakh people, Still it won’t get wasted.
After entering from Singhadwara’s first step (from inside of the Temple), you cannot hear any sound produced by the ocean. But, when you cross the same step (from outside of the Temple) you can hear it. This can be noticed clearly during evening.
