The name Jagannath (Lord of the Universe) is a combination of the Sanskrit words Jagat (Universe) and Nath (Lord of). This Jagannath temple is an important pilgrimage destination for most Hindus and part of the Char Dham pilgrimage that any Hindu is expected to make in a lifetime. The temple complex is huge and covers an area of over 400,000 square feet. It is surrounded by a 20 foot high wall called Meghanada Pacheri. The Idols of Jagannath, Balabhadra and the goddess Subhadra are seated on the bejewelled platform or the Ratnavedi in main temple. The Sudarshan Chakr along with idols of Madanmohan, Sridevi and Vishwadhatri are also placed here. The idols are made from sacred Neem logs known as Daru Bramha. Depending on the season the idols are dressed in different garbs and jewels.
