Jagannath Rath Yatra, Puri

Built out of stone to house the only wooden Hindu idols in India, the Jagannath temple in Puri is a magnificent structure. The temple also holds the mantle of ‘Biggest Hotel in the World’ for feeding thousands daily, and the food is quite good we hear. But pilgrims don’t just come here for the food. Every year, in July millions gather to witness the largest chariot festival in India, and to be in the middle of it is an intriguing experience to say the least!
