Puri

Puri, also called Jagannath Puri, is most famous as one among the four holy towns highly revered by Hindus (Char Dhams): Badrinath, Dwarka, Puri and Rameshwaram. It is said, “God bathes in Badrinath, dresses up at Dwarka, eats at Puri, and sleeps at Rameshwara.” This holy town is well-known for Prasad, sanctified food first offered to God. Temple of Jagannath, the main temple at Puri, is said to have the largest kitchen in the world; upto 250,000 pilgrims are fed on festivals.

According to scriptures, Jagannath Puri is the abode of God so transcendental that one who simply sleeps here gets the credit of absorption in samadhi, deep meditation. All beings here possess a four-handed form which is visible to divine beings. The glories of this place can be found in Skanda Purana, Brahma Purana, Vamadev Samhita, Kapila Samhita, Padma Purana, and Niladri Purana.

Jagannath Puri is also called Sri Kshetra, because this place is under the influence of Laxmi, the goddess of fortune; it is called Purushottama Kshetra, because it is the abode of Purushottama, another name of Sri Krishna; it is called Shankha Kshetra, because this land resembles in shape to a conchshell.
