"The black skin is made of wood but shines like gold,
The broad eyes are like watching all around the universe,
The wheels of the chariot are ready to collide with the sins of people,
The supreme lord Jagannath is waiting to disperse his blessings."
It is one among the seven “Moksha Dham” (A place where one can get salvation by entering into it) in India. The place where the lord of the universe, Jagannath, is ruling the entire universe with his divine blessings. The millions of devotees and their ocean of belief together call Jagannath their savior. The locals of Puri call Jagannath “BABA” (father) with pure love. One can explore the cuisine, handicrafts, localities, and pilgrimage shrines all around Puri.
