Jagannath Puri is one of the Char dhams. The Jagannath Puri temple located in Puri, Odisha is dedicated to Lord Jagannath. The name Jagannath is a combination of two words "Jagat" means Universe "Nath" meaning "Lord" and hence it means "Lord of the Universe". Lord Jagannath is believed to be a manifestation of Lord Vishnu. The main deities of the temple are Lord Jagannatha, his elder borther Balabhadra and his younger sister Subhadra. The image of Jagannath (of black colour representing sunya) Subhadra (the creative energy) and Balabhadra (of white colour representing phenomenol universe) have evolved from Nilamadhava of the ancient Kalinga Jaina.
The temple is famous for its annual "Rath yatra" or "chariot festival" in which the three main deities of the temple are placed on vast and highly decorated temple cars. iIt is belived that by seeing Lord on the Chariot on the Rathayatra day, one is able to attain salvation and get free from the cycles of birth and death.
Lord Jagannath is popularly known as "Darubrahma" literally meaning "the Godhead manifestation in a modern image" among the people. The temple of Jagnnath is built in the Kalinga style of architecture, with the Panchratha (Five chariots) type consisting of two anurathas, two konakas and one ratha. The temple is the mystery of 12th century A.D.
