The Puri Jagannath temple has a rich and varied history. It was invaded 18 times! The stories of the how and why different rulers plundered the temple are as fascinating as the ways in which the deities were protected every time. In this presentation, Usha discusses the present structure of the temple, its various sections and gives a description of the deities. We also get a glimpse into the architecture of the temple. One thing to be kept in mind is no photographs are available on the inner structure of the temple. Only a few very old photographs are available. Latest Photos show only the exterior of the temple. As the temple had been plastered with cement and lime information on the sculptural aspect of the temple is limited.
