Lord Jagannath's Bua (Aunty) place
Feb 2020 • Family
It is believed that it is Lord Jagannath's Bua's temple. Although around the year the temple is vacant and very easy to visit but during Rath Yatra the deities of main Jagannath temple are placed here for Puja. You can visit the temple after paying a small fee as entry ticket and enjoy and the temple structure.

Should Visit
Sep 2019
Supposed to be aunt of Lord Jagannath, it is said that if you visit the Jagannath temple one should also visit the temples which house his aunts. Also famously known as Masi (mother's sister) - Pisi (father's sister) temple.

Avoid, Pandas taking you for a ride!
Oct 2019 • Couples

We, myself and my wife, are on a tour of Puri and Bhuvaneshwar in support of our PM's appeal to travel across our own country.

Apart from the cheating experienced at Chilika Lake regarding pearls and gems (of which we were already aware, thanks to reviews on the net), we were highly disappointed by the behaviour of several priests at Gundicha Temple.

A ticket of Rs 5, lets you enter the temple and then the parade of visiting various small temples starts, way being barricaded by bamboos, arranged by different deities' set-ups and pandals. What started with tiny demand of Rs 10, soon spiralled to Rs 100. Small items such as trishul, coin, paduka, Laxmi pratima are thrust into hands, your head is forced down to touch the seat and the priests recite shlokas. Then there is a demand for Rs 100. They offer you change if you don't have it but out of the 500 rupee note given, hardly a hundred or two hundred are returned, citing the cost of the item given. When we tried to return that and demanded the money back, a threat too was given that "Mata, kya karegi dekh lo". After experiencing this at 2, 3 places, we searched the way out without even looking at various Bhagwan idols.

If this continues, the tourists would hardly visit the temple. 

Request the Orisa Govt to take measures to curb such practices. 

We have written a mail to Orissa CM's official mail id and are awaiting a reply

Gundicha Temple is where Lord Jagannath and his brother and sister visits at the time of Rath Yatra. It is in Puri and not very far from the main Puri Temple.
