Jagannath Temple, is in Agartala. The temple is a blend of Hindu and Islamic architecture?
This temple was built by the Maharaja of Tripura in the 19th century, and it’s dedicated to the Hindu Gods- Jagannath, Balabhadra, and Subhadra.
The exterior of the temple is influenced by Islamic architecture, but once you step inside, you’ll be greeted with Hindu splendor that will leave you in awe. It is said that the Neelmadhav idol that’s consecrated in Puri was donated from the Jagannath Bari Mandir of Tripura.
If you’re looking for a serene experience, attend the Nitya Puja, Bhoga offerings, and evening Aarti. Trust us; you’ll be lost in devotion and appreciate the simplicity and beauty of the temple.
But wait, there’s more! The annual Rath Yatra festival is an event you can’t miss. Hundreds of devotees attend this festival to celebrate Lord Jagannath’s journey towards his aunt’s house. The festival lasts for nine days and ends with taking back the deities to the Jagannath Temple. It’s a lively celebration that’s observed in June every year.
What makes the Jagannath Temple unique is the combination of Islamic, Hemadpanthi, Arabic, and Hindu architecture. The temple’s bright orange walls and pyramidal conic structures will catch your eye, and you’ll feel like royalty walking through it.
So, if you’re planning a trip to Agartala, don’t forget to visit the Jagannath Temple. You can hire an auto-rickshaw to reach the temple located in Krishna Nagar.
